This volume offers the first in-depth and comprehensive view on the reflecting team process, a new and original set of ideas and practices that is transforming the field of family therapy. Bringing together an international group of pioneering contributors, this book advances a concept of therapy as a public and participatory forum in which many voices are heard and affirmed. Therapeutic teams and audiences provide a wealth of creative possibilities as client and therapist collaborate to find new meanings and options for action, opening space for family (and community) change. Through both theoretical presentations and detailed clinical transcripts, the contributors illustrate the benefits and utility of applying the reflecting team approach in a wide variety of clinical contexts.

."...one of the best practical guides to the reflecting team. ... presents, in both form and function, the brainstorming essence of an actual reflection team: it brings together multiple, international perspectives to generate new ideas about psychotherapy in its readers. Socialized medicine systems, community mental health centers and staff-model HMO's are all excellent breeding grounds for the development of reflecting teams, But even fee-for-service and private practitioners who engage in peer and/or intern supervision should consider transforming their supervision meetings into live reflecting teams. The results of simultaneously demystifying the experts and expanding therapeutic possibilities can be exhilarating to supervisors, trainees and patients alike. Steven Friedman's volume is a recommended springboard for team development." --Gloria Garfunkel, PhD. Peabody Medical Associates of HMO Blue and Family Institute of Cambridge and Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology, .."..one of the best practical guides to the reflecting team. ... presents, in both form and function, the brainstorming essence of an actual reflection team: it brings together multiple, international perspectives to generate new ideas about psychotherapy in its readers.

"This book is a signpost of a timely and imperative revolution in the history of psychotherapy. It is a celebration of what could be classified as the postmodern era in therapy: letting go of many of our cherished ideas about pathology, psychology, and psychiatry and, instead, inviting members of the community to join forces with us in the search for a mutually acceptable way of conceiving and tackling those exciting challenges our clients continue to bring to our attention." --Ben Furman, M.D., Brief Therapy Institute of Helsinki, Finland

"An international cast of therapists share their creative applications of the premises of the collaborative, language-based reflecting process--and vividly show how a plurality of voices and a multiplicity of listening positions interact to enhance new possibilities for both the client and the therapist across clinical and cultural contexts." --Harlene Anderson, Ph.D., Director, Houston Galveston Institute

"At last, the reflecting team, the third and perhaps most original of the 'postmodern' contributions to the therapeutic process--alongside narrative and solution focus--gets the full treatment it deserves. It is very fitting that it take the form it has in this, Steven Friedman's second compilation of reports from the cutting edge. He has given us a rich and fascinating series of reflections on the innumerable ways multivoiced conversations can make space for people to change their stories. There is something here for everyone, from the beginner who has been wondering what it's all about to those of us who have benefited from the breath of air Tom Andersen and his team brought to systemic therapy several years ago." --Alan Parry, Ph.D., Family Therapy Program, The University of Calgary
