Now in a significantly revised and expanded second edition, this groundbreaking work illuminates how racism, sexism, and other forms of oppression constrain the lives of diverse clients--and family therapy itself. Practitioners and students gain vital tools for reevaluating prevailing conceptions of family health and pathology; tapping into clients' cultural resources; and developing more inclusive theories and therapeutic practices. From leaders in the field, the second edition features many new chapters, case examples, and specific recommendations for culturally competent assessment, treatment, and clinical training. The section in which authors reflect on their own cultural and family legacies also has been significantly expanded.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Reading this book was a truly invigorating experience. It captures the complex contexts of clients' and practitioners' lives, and puts forth suggestions for practice that are inclusive of all whom we serve. Resisting pathologizing explanations, the book provides a depth of knowledge for helping families draw on their strengths during difficult times. Chapters show how exclusion and marginalization contribute to the problems that families experience, and highlight clinical intervention approaches that are transformative. The second edition squarely confronts new forms of oppression arising in changing global contexts. This book will be most useful for graduate-level training in social work and other helping professions."--Sarah Maiter, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work, York University, Toronto, Canada

"This really is a terrific volume! The title aptly describes how McGoldrick, Hardy, and their contributing authors are 're-visioning' family therapy to reflect complex contemporary issues and approaches. This state-of-the-art work is a 'must have' for anyone who practices or teaches family therapy."--Beverly Greene, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, St. John's University

"McGoldrick and Hardy lead a wise council of practitioners to construct a vision of family therapy that is culturally and socially grounded. Rather than portraying individual cultural groups, the text addresses nuanced processes in understanding and working with difference in ways that broaden traditional conceptualizations and practices. This text will make a wonderful contribution to graduate courses addressing family treatment in all mental health-related disciplines."--Steven R. Lopez, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California

"McGoldrick and her colleagues have again pushed the boundaries of family therapy with this splendid, updated second edition. Here is a vision of family therapy that embraces the lived complexity of diversity, addressing the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, gender, national origin, religion and spirituality, and sexual orientation. The expanded section on therapists' own cultural legacies and stories will stimulate self-reflection that is critical to developing cultural competence, while increased attention to training will aid students and teachers alike in grounding this vision in practice. I highly recommend this text."--Francis G. Lu, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco
