THEORY AND TREATMENT PLANNING IN FAMILY THERAPY: A COMPETENCY-BASED APPROACH prepares readers for the realities of practicing therapy. This book's outcomes-based approach engages readers in an active learning process, introducing family therapy theories using theory-specific case conceptualization and treatment planning. These assignments empower readers to apply theoretical concepts and develop real-world skills as early as possible in their training. The author uses a down-to-earth style to explain concepts in clear and practical language. She also includes extensive discussions about how diversity issues and research inform contemporary practice of family therapy.
