Product description


`An admirably clear introduction to a large and complex topic.... this book will prove invaluable to the widest range of health and social welfare professionals... An outstanding feature is the warmth with which the author approaches his subject. The concern and respect which are the cornerstone of the professional relationship permeate the text. The tone of this book is lively, it is clearly written and very readable. I would recommend it to anyone who works with families' - Changes

`There are many books available on counselling families and this is one of the best... It is crammed full of important information and fascinating examples. I recommend it' - The Therapist

`A thought-provoking systemic paradigm of family counselling, primarily for counsellors-in-training in systemic work with families and experienced practitioners seeking some "refreshment"... Eddy Street displays a style of thinking and writing which highlights the kaleidoscopic patterns of family relationships. The results for the reader can be an ever-developing appreciation of systemic work and counselling skills within that frame' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

`A book I would recommend beginner and experienced counsellors or counselling psychologists to read and purchase' - British Psychological Society Counselling Psychology Review

`Street offers remarkably concise coverage of the rapidly growing body of literature on family systems therapy... the text is enlivened by case vignettes illustrating therapeutic techniques. Counsellor goals and techniques at different stages of the work are nicely summarized in tables and boxes. There is a valuable diagram on the Family Life Cycle. Among the many insights are comments on the range of expectations families entertain of counsellors, and the implications of these for the counsellor's efforts. Family counsellors working in institutional settings will enjoy the analysis of referrer motivations, as well as the advice on how to manage ill-prepared or inappropriate referrals. I warmly recommend this book as an enriching introduction to family systems thinking and therapy' - Communications Newsletter
