Re-Visioning Family Therapy, Third Edition: Addressing Diversity in Clinical Practice



A leading text for courses that go beyond the basics of family systems theory, intervention techniques, and diversity, this influential work has now been significantly revised with 65% new material. The volume explores how family relationships–and therapy itself–are profoundly shaped by race, social class, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and other intersecting dimensions of marginalization and privilege. Chapters from leading experts guide the practitioner to challenge assumptions about family health and pathology, understand the psychosocial impact of oppression, and tap into clients’ cultural resources for healing. Practical clinical strategies are interwoven with theoretical insights, case examples, training ideas, and therapists’ reflections on their own cultural and family legacies.
