All too often the experience of those who receive family therapy is neglected in family therapy theorizing and literature; this in turn affects practice. The authors ofIntroducing User-Friendly Family Therapydescribe in practical detail the results of an action research project in which all the professionals involved began to modify their practice on the basis of feedback from users. They draw out the implications of what they discovered for providing a genuinely user-friendly service and set the arguments for a more humanistic approach in the wider context of contemporary social policy. Thought provoking and practical in emphasis, this is a book which will stimulate all professionals working with children and families to reassess their ways of thinking and working.
