Sample text

In what is termed postmodern therapy the belief is that reality is so­ cially constructed, and that one person’s view of a situation is as valid as the next person’s. This view of therapy is collaborative and focuses on client language, and not necessarily on the family system. The book is organized into two parts. Part I is a theoretical section, in which the history of family therapy (and the theories generated therein) is explored, and then systems theory is detailed for the reader as a base to most subsequent family therapy models discussed in Part I.

In 1970, the AAMC changed its name to the American Association of Marriage and Family Counselors, and subsequently to the American Asso­ ciation for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) in 1979, to reflect this expanded perspective. THE FAM ILY THERAPY M OVEM ENT Perhaps the greatest push within the field of marriage and family therapy came from the family therapy movement (Broderick and Schrader, 1991; Guerin, 1976; Kaslow, 1980; Nichols and Schwartz, 1998). The early fam­ ily therapists were researchers and clinicians working with intractable prob­ lems such as schizophrenia and delinquency.

The program has agreements with several agencies in the area that also provide first-rate clinical training to students as well as potential job place­ ments. Three program students have won AAMFT Student Research Awards, and one, the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) Family Therapy Section Student Research Award. Faculty members not only are actively in­ volved in research and in publishing their work, but they also truly enjoy working with students. Several ongoing projects are in progress at any given time to provide students with good experience and opportunities to earn money as graduate assistants and to work closely with faculty.
