Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, this text and professional resource provides a practical guide to family-based therapy for childhood emotional and behavioral problems. Presented are innovative assessment and treatment strategies that take into account children's developmental needs, different family forms, health and environmental challenges, and relationships with larger systems. Reflecting 15 years of clinical advances and the changing contexts of family life, the second edition features many new chapters and new authors. New topics include gene-environment interactions, integrating family therapy with child pharmacotherapy, working with foster families, and treating disrupted attachments.

Industry Reviews

'Emphasizing the transactional relationship between child development and family process, this book provides broad and deep coverage of contemporary families. Each chapter offers specific approaches to intervention. In this new edition, the chapters on attachment disorders, school-based interventions, family violence, and legal issues are particularly relevant and valuable. This book will be useful in graduate family therapy courses in all the mental health disciplines, and will also be a valued reference for child and family therapists.' "- Douglas Davies, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work, University of Michigan" 'This second edition is an excellent successor to a classic work in the field. The volume focuses on issues pertinent to children and their families in the 21st century, paying thoughtful attention to such new topics as children in foster families and the many cultures of child protection. Consistent with the current zeitgeist, an emphasis is now placed on the biology of family culture and family therapy in an age of biologic psychiatry. This highly readable book is an absolute 'must' for all family therapy educators. As a text, it will help students develop a child-in-family way of thinking and learn to apply this approach in assessment and intervention with families. Practicing clinicians will appreciate this book as well, and will find it comprehensive, informative, and engaging.' "- Nadine J. Kaslow, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Emory University School of Medicine"" "
