Family, Self and Psychotherapy is a comprehensive person-centred look at the family as the essential element of society, and is valuable reading for professionals and volunteers working with families, children and individuals. Explores our human need to be inter-connected and its implications for both individual and family therapy. The volume is informally divided into three sections. The first section deals with the centrality of the family to our species as a whole and to us as individuals. The next addresses the optimistic philosophical foundations of the person-centred approach: the tapestry of the self and its core drive towards psychological well-being. The last section - the heart of the book - deals with the principles and pragmatics of the person-centred approach to working with individuals and families. Gaylin asserts that therapeutic relationships are more liely to thrive when viewed from this positive perspective especially when therapy operates within the individual's family context.
