This set of DVDs highlights and accompanies the different theoretical approaches featured in Jon WinekAes Systemic Family Therapy. The most comprehensive set of family therapy DVDs available, it covers a wide array of family structures, including couples, single parents, mixed race and ethnicity couples/families, and LGBT families/couples, from a variety of therapeutic approaches. Each DVD opens with an introduction to the approach and to the therapist, followed by a role play session and commentary from the therapist. The therapist discusses what issues were presented in the session and their conceptualization of the presenting problem. This similar format for each DVD allows students and professionals to easily see the differences among the approaches and how each theory shapes clinical practice.
