Family Therapy in Changing Times

by Gill Gorell Barnes

Part of the Basic Texts in Counselling and Psychotherapy Series

Family Therapy in Changing Times Synopsis

The new edition of this well-known text addresses the plurality of family life today, and considers the way in which the changeable 'theory of family' has influenced the approaches of those working with families. The emphasis in this second edition is on working in a context of cultural diversity and in which life transitions such as marriage, divorce and bereavement, affect the lives of all families, be they multi- or lone-parent, gay or heterosexual. This is an essential text for therapists and counsellors, both in training and in practice, who work with families.

Family Therapy in Changing Times Press Reviews

'...enjoyable and an education...I would recommend this book.' - David Spellman, Journal of Family Therapy; ' accurate snapshot of a discipline in transition written from the perspective of a senior figure in the teaching and clinical practice of family therapy in Britain...This is an important book in several ways. Throughout it contains a rich source of examples of how effective systemic psychotherapists work. It identifies the middle ground of contemporary British family therapy. Both new and experienced family therapists will benefit from reading it.' - David Jones, Child Psychology & Psychiatry; 'Gill Gorell Barnes is a popular author with our students, and I am sure that this book will be no exception...the book offers clear explanations with helpful illustrations. This is a book students will come back to again and again, especially when they are in practice.' - Lynne Hooten, Glasgow Caledonian University
