About this product
- DescriptionThis text will enable students to gain beginning proficiency as a family therapist along with understanding the impact of a client's race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender issues, age, socioecomic status, disability, and differences from the traditional family on family assessment and intervention. The book has six goals, as follows: - acquaint students with the theoretical underpinnings of various approaches to assessing and intervening with families - assist students in understanding the similarities, differences and strategies of change among the major models of family therapy - introduce the student to the current available research on the effectiveness of different approaches to family intervention - help students assess family functioning from a life cycle perspective and make a valid plan, taking into account client's race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender issues, age, socioecomic status, disability, and differences from the traditional family - help students develop techniques and strategies related to stages of the intervention in family therapy - enable the student to critique the appropriateness of the theoretical models and its intervention techniques according to family developmental factors as well as the particular needs of the family.
