The most widely read magazine in the mental health field, the award–winning Family Therapy Networker is recognized as a provocative forum for examining the latest innovations and findings in the field. Drawing together two decades of the Networker′s popular case studies and commentaries, this book vividly illustrates the art of psychotherapy as practiced by the nation′s leading authorities on couples and family therapy. In addition to the full text of the cases, The Art of Psychotherapy also offers study questions to stimulate thought and discussion, making this text an ideal teaching tool.
Organized by treatment population to make it easy to reference, the cases explore everything from couples issues (After the Affair: "Turning Down the Temperature") to working with children (Gender Identity Issues: "The Boy Who Loved Catwoman") to the unique challenges of therapy in the ′90s (Recovered Memories: "Avoiding the Truth Trap").
