This book covers the family treatment practice theories that have begun to develop an evidence basis to support them. It not only reviews the research evidence to support these theories, but most importantly delineates how to implement them with problems that human service and mental health practitioners commonly see in today's practice settings. Theories discussed include psychoeducation, behavioral therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, structural family therapy, and multisystemic therapy. The organization of the book is developmental stage (childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and older adulthood) and type of presenting problem (social problems and mental health disorders).
