Throughouthuman history, designated persons in all cultures have helped couples and families cope, adjust,and grow. In the United States, the interest in assisting families within a healing context began inthe 20th century and continues into the 21st. Family life has always been of interest, but becauseof economic, social, political, and spiritual values, outsiders made little direct intervention,except for social work, into ways of helping family functioning until the 1950s. Now, there areliterally thousands of professionals who focus their attention and skills on improving familydynamics and relationships.In examining how professionals work to assist families, the reader should keep in mindthat there are as many ways of offering help as there are kinds of families. However, the mostwidely recognized methods are counseling, therapy, educational enrichment, and prevention.The general umbrella term for remediation work with families is family therapy. This conceptincludes the type of work done by family professionals who identify themselves by differenttitles, including marriage and family therapists, licensed professional counselors, psychologists,psychiatrists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, pastoral counselors, and clergy.Family therapy is not a perfect term; it is bandied about by a number of professional associations, such as the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), theAmerican Counseling Association (ACA), the American Psychological Association (APA), theAmerican Medical Association (AMA), and the National Association of Social Workers(NASW). Physicians who treat families also debate this term. As doctors, are they “family therapists,” or, because they are engaged in the practice of medicine, are they “family medical specialists”? For purposes of this book, the generic term family therapy is used because of its wideacceptance among the public and professionals who engage in the practice of helping families.Within this term, some aspects of educational enrichment and prevention are included.ORGANIZATIONAs a comprehensive text, this book focuses on multiple aspects of family therapy.Part 1 introduces the reader to the foundations on which family therapy is built, such asgeneral systems theory, cybernetics, and the history of the profession. It also acquaints readerswith various types of families and family forms (e.g., nuclear, single parent, blended), characteristics of healthy and dysfunctional families, and cultural as well as ethical and legal considerationsin working with families.Part 2 examines the main theoretical approaches to working therapeutically with couples andfamilies. For couples, these theories are behavioral couple therapy (BCT), cognitive–behavioralcouple therapy (CBCT), and emotionally focused therapy (EFT). For families, major theories arepsychodynamic, Bowen (or transgenerational), experiential (including feminist), behavioral,cognitive–behavioral, structural, strategic, solution-focused, and narrative approaches. Eachtheoretical chapter emphasizes the major theorist(s) of the approach, premises, techniques,process, outcome, and unique aspects of the theory, and a comparison with other approaches. Caseillustrations and brief cases applying the theory are also provided.iii

This part of the book is the briefest, but itis also meaty in focusing on issues that are relevant to society and to the health and well-being ofpeople and the profession.As you read, consider Miller’s (1990) four-level pyramid of clinical competence. In thisconceptualization, the base of the pyramid is built on factual knowledge gained by reading andstudying didactic information. One level up is “knows how,” or the ability to apply the knowledge gained on the previous level. On top of that level is “shows how,” which is represented bythe person’s ability to act appropriately in a practical or simulated situation. At the top of thepyramid is the “does” level, which is actual clinical work in regular practice (Miller, 2010). Thepresent text can be considered as the base of the pyramid, with exercises to help you begin toreach the second and third levels, so that with advanced training you will be able to functioneffectively at the final level.DoesShows howKnows howKnowsNEW TO THIS EDITIONThe seventh edition of Family Therapy is considerably different from the sixth edition. Highlights of the differences are as follows: First, the organization of the book is different. There are now 18 instead of 16 chapters.Each of the eight major theories in family therapy now have their own chapter, whichmakes focusing on the theories more specific. Second, the book has much fresh material. For instance, there are over 240 new sourcescited altogether. Third, 31 new charts have been added to the chapters in the text. These charts summarizesome of the major points in the chapters, such as clinical techniques, and thus help thereader remember important information better. Fourth, the glossary of family therapy terms has been updated and refreshed. Fifth, new material within chapters have been added on working with singles, stress, intercultural families, ethics, new couple adjustment, emotionally-focused therapy, defensemechanisms, functional family and behavioral family therapy, structural family therapy,and qualitative research. Sixth, an Epilogue has been added to the back of the book. Seventh, 25 new cases have been added to the eight family theories chapters. These casesare brief and, with only a slight play on words intended, they are titled “Brief Cases.”

It is more developmental and current, better illustrated with examples and charts, and amore thoroughly researched and reflective book, without sacrificing content or readability. Thereis an emphasis on both the reader’s family of origin and families he or she will work with. Theseventh edition of Family Therapy takes a broader and more progressive approach to treatingfamilies, while remaining rich in covering theories and ways of preventing families from becoming dysfunctional.ALSO AVAILABLE WITH MYLAB COUNSELINGThis title is also available with MyLab Counseling, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with the text to engage students and improve results. Within itsstructured environment, students see key concepts demonstrated through video clips, practicewhat they learn, test their understanding, and receive feedback to guide their learning and ensurethey master key learning outcomes. Learning Outcomes and Standards measure student results. MyLab Counselingorganizes all assignments around essential learning outcomes and national standards forcounselors. Video- and Case-Based Exercises develop decision-making skills. Video- and Casebased Exercises introduce students to a broader range of clients, and therefore a broaderrange of presenting problems, than they will encounter in their own pre-professional clinical experiences. Students watch videos of actual client-therapist sessions or high-qualityrole-play scenarios featuring expert counselors. They are then guided in their analysis ofthe videos through a series of short-answer questions. These exercises help studentsdevelop the techniques and decision-making skills they need to be effective counselorsbefore they are in a critical situation with a real client. Licensure Quizzes help students prepare for certification. Automatically graded,multiple-choice Licensure Quizzes help students prepare for their certification examinations, master foundational course content, and improve their performance in the course. Video Library offers a wealth of observation opportunities. The Video Library provides more than 400 video clips of actual client-therapist sessions and high-quality roleplays in a database organized by topic and searchable by keyword. The Video Libraryincludes every video clip from the MyLab Counseling courses plus additional videos fromPearson’s extensive library of footage. Instructors can create additional assignmentsaround the videos or use them for in-class activities. Students can expand their observationexperiences to include other course areas and increase the amount of time they spendwatching expert counselors in action.A PERSONAL NOTEIn undertaking the writing of this work, I have been informed not only by massive amounts ofreading in the rapidly growing field of family therapy, but also by my experiences during thelast 40 years of therapeutically working with families. Both my family of origin and currentfamily of procreation have influenced me as well. In addition, as a member of both the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy and the International Association for Marriage and Family Counselors, I have tried to view families and family therapy from the broadestv

My mother died in August,2000, only 2 months short of turning 90, just as I was finishing the third edition of the book. Thelove and courage of both my parents, along with the legacy left to me by previous generations ofmy family, have affected me positively. I know I am most fortunate.Finally, and as important, I am indebted to my wife, Claire, for her encouragement andcomfort during the writing process. She has insisted throughout this effort, as through our31 years of marriage, that we talk and build our relationship as a couple. She has employed all ofher communication skills, including a generous dose of humor, to help me be a better spouse.She has also been, throughout this time, my partner, friend, and lover in the raising of our threechildren: Ben, Nate, and Tim.Samuel T.
