I cannot believe that previous reviewers complained about the lack of an index in a book of '100 key points and techniques!' One would imagine that the index is in the points!

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable basic text
As the title suggests, this book provides a very brief and basic overview of 100 key points and techniques related to family therapy. The structure is generally logical and covers what might be expected, in introducing systems theory, challenging misunderstandings and working through aspects of beginning, developing and ending therapy. It offers thoughts about common...

This review is from: Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Paperback)
I cannot believe that previous reviewers complained about the lack of an index in a book of '100 key points and techniques!' One would imagine that the index is in the points! That said as a family therapist I enjoyed the writing style, thought it covered a range of ideas well and sensibly and gave a good flavour of key ideas. The idea that family therapy is complex has a great deal of currency and sometimes it is and sometimes we might do well to pick one of the points in this book and give it a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable basic text, 16 Oct 2010
This review is from: Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Paperback)
As the title suggests, this book provides a very brief and basic overview of 100 key points and techniques related to family therapy. The structure is generally logical and covers what might be expected, in introducing systems theory, challenging misunderstandings and working through aspects of beginning, developing and ending therapy. It offers thoughts about common challenges encountered. However, each of the 100 points receives less than three small pages of attention so it is only useful as a very basic introduction to what are sometimes incredibly complex theoretical ideas or techniques.

At times, the authors make claims about techniques which seem to make assumptions without referring to the evidence to support such claims, e.g. stating that seeing their family mapped on a genogram is an experience that 'always allows clients to feel embedded in the influences that have formed them'. This might be based on their own clinical experience, but is not necessarily accurate.

Although the contents page includes all of the 100 points and techniques covered, the lack of an index does make the book difficult to use if you want to quickly refer to something, or find reference to something under a point or technique with a different title.

3.0 out of 5 stars no index in this book, 15 May 2010

This review is from: Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Paperback)
I bought this to help with understanding and using theory in an essay for my FT course. Its OK but a bit basic. The MAJOR issue is no index at the back!! How useless in a text book.

"100 points" Nice idea that does not quite make it as not bit wooly in many places..

Please put index in next edition.

This review is from: Family Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques (Paperback)
An excellent brief introductory textbook for those wanting to dip their toe into the field, or a great opportunity for more seasoned practitioners to revisit, review and reconsider areas of practice and
theory they have maybe not considered for some time.
I was really impressed by both the content and the format of the book, and would also commend the price too!
If you are training to be a family or systemic therapist this would be an excellent foundation level textbook for your reading list I feel.

Useful introduction. Easy to read, nice and short! Good for year 1 of family therapy training but you might want something with more depth in later years.
