Destructive Myths in Family Therapy How to Overcome Barriers to Communication by Seeing and Saying -- A Humanistic Perspective Press Reviews

Although the title might suggest a relatively narrow target audience of family therapists, I feel certain that the fascinating ideas addressed here, coupled with the accessible style, would also speak to the experienced therapist, the trainee and the lay reader alike. By focusing on what is actually said in spousal, sibling and parental relationships, the authors invite the reader to reflect on the powerful and often destructive myths, narratives, schemas call them what you will that underpin family systems.
