Review

"Alan Carr′s Family Therapy: Concepts Process and Practice is a remarkable achievement… an extremely useful guide for the frontline practitioner."
—John Sharry, Mater Hospital, Ireland

From the Back Cover

"Alan Carr has once more demonstrated his unique ability to combine an encyclopaedic breadth of knowledge with clear pragmatic ideas about how to apply this knowledge in clinical practice. The 2nd edition of this book is more than just an update with new sections on common factors in therapy and on integrative models of family therapy which are particularly welcome."
—Ivan Eisler, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London, UK
Editor, Journal of Family Therapy

"Carr’s style of comprehensively considering different theories and approaches in a practical manner and demonstrating their integrative and cohesive properties is exceptionally helpful and grounding for the reader. There is little doubt that this volume will well serve students, trainees and experienced practitioners for sometime to come."
—Eddy Street, Former Editor of Journal of Family Therapy

Now in its second edition, Family Therapy: Concepts, Process and Practice has been fully updated to cover recent advances in theory and practice. It offers a critical evaluation of the major schools of family therapy, provides an integrative model for the practice of marital and family therapy, and demonstrates how this model can be used in everyday practice with a range of common child–focused and adult–focused problems. It also provides a thorough, up–to–date review of research on the effectiveness of family therapy and outlines implications for evidence–based practice.

This popular text now includes exercises that can be used by trainers and trainees to foster family therapy skills development. Other key features from the first edition are retained, including:

  • Chapter plans at the start of each chapter and a helpful summary of key points at the end
  • Suggestions for further reading
  • Glossary of key terms in theoretical chapters
  • Case examples
  • Full details of resources for professionals, including useful web sites.

Family Therapy: Concepts, Process and Practice is a must–have resource for all students and mental health professionals training in family therapy. It will also be of interest to experienced practitioners, and those who are involved in delivering training programmes.

Alan Carr writes that avoidant children sulk on several occasions in this book. I was shocked and disappointed that there is no appreciation of the common fate met by toddlers who have learned early to avoid their parents/caregivers as they mature; they are more likely than other children to be bullies during their childhood, less likely to be able to ask for help at school, more likely to have difficulties in personal relationships and thus more likely to be isolated and suffer depression in adulthood. All because these (usually very bright) children learn very early that their caregivers are not likely to respond to their age appropriate signals for help/comfort and stop asking for and expecting such support. I don't believe an under-indulged child should ever be labelled a 'sulker'. The pain of the consequences of early learned avoidancy could be prevented if only adults would stop interpreting the behaviour of such infants /children /adolescents /adults from the perspective of their own likely under indulged upbringing.
For a book on Family therapy covering multiple perspectives I would expect much better.
Having issued this !Health Warning! the book seems to me to be otherwise a good overview, succinctly written and otherwise worthy of the praise it has received.

it is difficult to get books that not only mention theory but also detail the practises that relate to the theory. This book has evidence based practices and has its own critque on its flaws.
