Integrative, research-based, multisystemic: these words reflect not only the state of family therapy, but the nature of this comprehensive handbook as well. The contributors, all well-recognized names who have contributed extensively to the field, accept and embrace the tensions that emerge when integrating theoretical perspectives and science in clinical settings to document the current evolution of couples and family therapy, practice, and research. Each individual chapter contribution is organized around a central theme: that the integration of theory, clinical wisdom, and practical and meaningful research produce the best understanding of couple and family relationships, and the best treatment options. The handbook contains five parts:
* Part I describes the history of the field and its current core theoretical constructs
* Part II analyzes the theories that form the foundation of couple and family therapy, chosen because they best represent the broad range of schools of practice in the field
* Part III provides the best examples of approaches that illustrate how clinical models can be theoretically integrative, evidence-based, and clinically responsive
* Part IV summarizes evidence and provides useful findings relevant for research and practice
* Part V looks at the application of couple and family interventions that are based on emerging clinical needs, such as divorce and working in medical settings.
Handbook of Family Therapy illuminates the threads that are common to family therapies and gives voice to the range of perspectives that are possible. Practitioners, researchers, and students need to have this handbook on their shelves, both to help look back on our past and to usher in the next evolution in family therapy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Years from now, this comprehensive handbook will prove to be one of the pillars that articulated the tenants of our beloved field! In the age of evidence based practice, this handbook further cements our identity as a research informed profession that provides 21st century clinical care. That is, each chapter is written from the framework of clinical wisdom nested within a research foundation. This book is the epitome of the Scientist-Practitioner model and is a must have for all couple and family therapists!--Anthony L. Chambers, PhD, ABPP-CFP, Chief Academic Officer and Vice President for Education and Research and President, American Psychological Association, Society for Couple and Family Psychology (Div. 43).

Lebow and Sexton's who's-who of contributors collectively reflect the richness and breadth of contemporary family therapy. The common thread is the integration of clinical wisdom with meaningful research. Each strengthens the other. The result is a gift to the field and a must-read for all serious family therapy students, clinicians, and researchers.--Fred P. Piercy, PhD, Professor of Family Therapy, Virginia Tech; Editor, Journal of Marital and Family Therapy.

This landmark volume fills an essential niche in the field of family and couple therapy. The editors, Lebow and Sexton, have assembled an outstanding multidisciplinary group of contributors at the leading edge of the field. This book wonderfully achieves the goal of weaving together the best theory, practical and meaningful research, and clinical wisdom to guide best treatment options. Masterfully crafted, the Handbook of Family Therapy is an indispensable resource for students and senior practitioners.-John S. Rolland, MD, MPH, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine; Co-Director, Chicago Center for Family Health; Past President, American Family Therapy Academy.

It is an excellent reference resource for anyone who is interested in learning more about the current status of family therapy...The book could also be used as a text in an advanced graduate seminar for students who have already completed basic foundational coursework in systems theory and family therapy.-- Joseph A. Micucci, PhD, Chair of the Division of Psychology, Chestnut Hill College
