Illustrated with extensive clinical case material, this volume provides the skills practitioners need to conduct structural and behavioral family therapy sessions in the home, school, and community. The authors demonstrate how meetings outside of the traditional office setting can enable therapists to intervene actively in the various systems that affect clients' lives.
