An Innovative Approach to Family Therapy This breakthrough book takes you beyond the theoretical boundaries that currently constrain family therapy and leads instead to an innovative approach. The authors analyze the different orientations of family therapy schools and provide a foundation for understanding the fundamental concepts that underlie all approaches. By integrating these multiple models of therapy, or metaframeworks, you can improve the flexibility and comprehensiveness of your treatment without having to abandon your training. Full of practical ideas, methods, and examples, Metaframeworks offers a wealth of guidelines for applying these innovative strategies to a wide range of clinical problems and populations.
