Theory-Based Treatment Planning for Marriage and Family Therapists: Integrating Theory and Practice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text is a treatment planner and theory guide for therapists working from systemic and postmodern approaches. Unlike existing resources, this treatment planner provides a means to directly integrate family therapy theory and practice. By providing treatment planning strategies along with complete overviews of specific theories, the book provides a remedy for the common "missing link" between theory and practice. The purpose of this book is to fill the ever-widening gap between formal training in theory and actual practice in managed-care dominated workplaces. The text covers 11 of the most widely used family therapies providing a summary for each theory and then specific strategies for developing a treatment plan.

Book News Annotation:

To be licensed in California, therapists must pass examinations that require a detailed theory-based treatment plan. Practicing therapists Gehart and Tuttle present methods and guidelines towards integrating theory and practice in treatment planning. They review 11 common family therapy theories and explain methods of conceptualizing treatment from these approaches. Sample treatment plans for each theory are also included.
