Interesting insights into Minuchin's theory. I loved the dialog of actual therapy sessions contained in the book and the different means of therapy that were utilized . Very interesting.
A good introduction to Minuchin's theory and practice of family therapy. If you're into family therapy, you'll have to come across this sooner or later, and if you don't, then you should have.
Really good and comprehensive manual on Milan's model of systemic therapy. The chapter about the first session with a family will be really helpful for new therapists.
