He trained with Salvador Minuchin and Murray Brown and has worked with many leaders of the various schools. He’s written a number of books, including the most respected textbook in family therapy, Family Therapy: Concepts and Methods, as well as the best-selling The Lost Art of Listening, and, most recently, Assessing Families and Couples: From Symptom to System (with Salvador Minuchin and Wai-Yung Lee).

Had to buy this book for school and wasn’t terribly excited about it, but its actually a very intresting read even for me who is not planning on practicing family therapy. Very well written and enjoyable to read.

Book arrived on time and in perfect condition. Does not include access to pearson’s accompanying student website though. But happy anyways.
