Advance students, trainees and practitioners of Family Therapy will welcome this comprehensive, critical and integrative textbook which offers a systematic account of the practice of family therapy and also the conceptual approaches which enlighten and guide best practice Family Therapy: Concepts, Process and Practice offers a critical evaluation of the major schools of family therapy, an integrative model for the practice of marital and family therapy, and examples of how this model may be used with a range of common child-focused and adult-focused problems Alan Carr examines findings from research on the effectiveness of family therapy and shows the implications for these for evidence-based practice . The author's integrative approach to therapy focuses on both problems and exceptions to problems. It also addresses family behaviour patterns and beliefs systems and narratives, as well as the broader contextual factors, which make family problems,and their treatment, so complex. The book shows how this approach to family therapy may be used to address problems of childhood and adolescence such as child abuse, conduct problems and drug abuse, as well as problems of adulthood such as marital distress, anxiety, depression, alcohol abuse and schizophrenia Resources and aids for the student and professional are included throughout, including chapter plans and conclusions with a summary of key points, case examples, and suggestions for further reading, and the theoretical chapters include a glossary of new terms A section on information resources in family therapy is also included. This gives details on training tapes, assessment instruments, ethical guidelines and major journals in the field "In its comprehensiveness this volume will prove to be a valuable source book for beginners and experienced therapists alike. This book's discussion of different schools of therapy is clear, concise and non-dogmatic. Its elaboration of a model of therapeutic skills development distils the best from a number of approaches and is based on sound common sense. Its discussion of family therapy with particular clinical groups is exceptionally helpful and appropriately pragmatic. The book is very good. It will serve its readers well Dr Eddy Street, Editor of the Journal of Family Therapy and University of Wales, UK "Alan Carr's Family Therapy: Concepts, Process, and Practice, is the best and most comprehensive general family therapy text on the market. Its combination of sound academics and clinical material makes it useful as a graduate text, a professional review (for example for licensure), and as a clinical guide. The book provides a sound overall presentation of the history of the field and the theories of family therapy, offers an extremely useful research-based model of family therapy, and applies family therapy to the treatment of most of the common behaviour disorders. This is truly the general family therapy book of the new century" Terry S. Trepper, Ph.D., Editor, Journal of Family Psychotherapy and Professor of Psychology and Marriage & Family Therapy, Purdue University, USA

From the Forewor "There are "two for the price of one" in this volume. The "first book" in this book is a highly readable introductory accounting of the major approaches to Family Therapy. the second "book-within-a-book" is Alan Carr's singular contribution, The Formulation Model of family therapy treatment planning and intervention. This is an eminently teachable and learnable clinical model. I like to think of Carr's book as news you can use, rather than views that confuse. It will be accessible on "the other side" of the Atlantic Alan S Gurman, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Director of Marital and Family Therapy Training, University of Wisconsin Medical School, USA

While practical in orientation, the book is based solidly on empirical evidence.Building on the success of the previous edition this handbook has been extensively revised in a number of ways. Throughout the book, the text, references, and website addresses and have been updated to reflect important developments since the publication the first edition. Recent research findings on the epidemiology, aetiology, course, outcome, assessment and treatment of all psychological problems considered in this volume have been incorporated into the text. Account has been taken of changes in the diagnosis and classification of psychological problems reflected in the DSM-5. Chapters on ADHD in adults, emotion focused therapy, radically open dialectical behaviour therapy, and schema therapy have been added. The book is divided into 6 sections: Section 1 covers conceptual frameworks for practice (lifespan development; classification and epidemiology; CBT, psychodynamic, emotion focused, systemic and bio-medical models; and general assessment procedures) Section 2 deals with mood problems (depression, bipolar disorder, suicide risk, and anger management) Section 3 focuses on anxiety problems (social phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and depersonalization disorder) Section 4 deals with psychological problems linked to physical health (health anxiety, somatization, chronic pain, adjustment to cancer, and eating disorders) Section 5 focuses on other significant psychological problems that come to the attention of clinical psychologist in adult mental health services (ADHD in adults, alcohol and other drug problems, psychosis, and psychological problems in older adults) Section 6 contains chapters on therapeutic approaches to psychological distress related to complex childhood trauma (dialectical behaviour therapy for borderline personality disorder, racially open dialectical behaviour for over-controlled presentations, and schema therapy). Each of the chapters on clinical problems explains how to assess and treat the condition in an evidence-based way with reference to case material. Interventions from cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, interpersonal/systemic and biomedical approaches are described, where there is evidence that they are effective for the problem in question. Skill building exercises and further reading for psychologists and patients are included at the end of each chapter. This book is one of a set of three volumes which cover the lion’s share of the curriculum for clinical psychologists in training in the UK and Ireland. The other two volumes are the Handbook of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology, Third Edition (by Alan Carr) and the Handbook of Intellectual Disability and Clinical Psychology Practice, Second Edition edited by Alan Carr, Christine Linehan, Gary O’Reilly, Patricia Noonan Walsh, & John McEvoy).
