This practical breakthrough introduces a robust framework for family and couples therapy specifically designed for working with difficult, entrenched, and court-mandated situations. Using an original model (the System for Observing Family Therapy Alliances, or SOFTA) suitable to therapists across theoretical lines, the authors detail special challenges, empirically-supported strategies, and alliance-building interventions organized around common types of ongoing couple and family conflicts. Copious case examples illustrate how therapists can empower family members to discover their agency, find resources to address tough challenges, and especially repair their damaged relationships. These guidelines also show how to work effectively within multiple relationships in a family without compromising therapist focus, client individuality, or client safety.

Included in the coverage:

Using the therapeutic alliance to empower couples and families
Couples' cross-complaints
Engaging reluctant adolescents...and their parents
Parenting in isolation, with or without a partner
Child maltreatment: creating therapeutic alliances with survivors of relational trauma
Disadvantaged, multi-stressed families: adrift in a sea of professional helpers
Empowering through the alliance: a practical formulationTherapeutic Alliances with Families offers powerful new tools for social workers, mental health professionals, and practitioners working in couple and family therapy cases with reluctant clients and seeking specific, practical case examples and resources for alliance-related interventions.
