A first of its kind resource for clinicians, researchers, educators, graduate students, and policymakers, this authoritative four-volume Handbook is a ground-breaking reference work on both the profession and the practice of systemic family therapy. The Handbook integrates the scholarly literature on systemic interventions focused on children, couples, and families into a single resource. Volume 1 includes critical information on the theoretical, practice, research, and policy foundations of the profession of systemic family therapy and its roles in an integrated health care system. Topics in Volume 2 (children and adolescents), Volume 3 (couples), and Volume 4 (family over the lifespan) reflect established and emerging interventions for the core difficulties in relationships that impact the mental and physical health of individuals, couples, and families. Contributors provide a balanced, integrative, and forward-looking analysis of the research, theory and interventions related to their topic illustrated with clinical examples. Particular attention is paid to cultural and family diversity throughout the work.
