Product Description


"A special word of appreciation to the Goldenbergs: they have provided a much needed text which has developed over the last editions into a more sophisticated body of material which is balanced by its accessibility for teaching and learning the introductory MFT, MA level, while also serving as an excellent resource text. Breathing through the text is their obvious care for persons, families, community and our work as therapists."

I bought this book as a reference book and was required for a degree module I was studying. I haven't read the complete book but it is a good reference book.

HASH(0x9ca358dc) out of 5 stars A Gem Amongst Psych Texts 7 Feb. 2006
By Grad Student - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Thus far this book has been easy to read and informative, detailing the incredibly useful theories and principles of Family Therapy.

This being my first text on the subject has kindled an interest in me to continue pusuing the subject in depth, and I recoomend this text as a canon text in the specialty of Introductory Family Therapy.

HASH(0x9d0c4888) out of 5 stars Family Therapy An (Humdrum) Overview 4 Aug. 2005
By Eliza Bennet - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This text is very dry reading. As a student, I had to force myself to read by promising myself rewards every ten pages (yes! I can go get a drink! Then ten more pages and then yes! I can call my mom!) And I am interested in the subject, and love to read. The information is good, detailed, etc. but the method is dry. In comparison, my counseling theories text was easy to read, informative, and interesting, and it didn't take self positive reinforcing to get me to read the whole thing.
