Summary
    Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy: Theory, Skills, Assessment, and Application gives readers a strong foundation in marriage and family therapy history, theory, and clinical assessment, and supports the development of skills and competencies needed to be effective, ethical counseling practitioners.

    The book is organized into four sections. The first covers the history and conceptual frameworks of marriage and family counseling. The second focuses on research, intake, assessment, and progress evaluation, information not covered in any other comparable textbook. In the third section, students learn about the major schools and models of family therapy, while the fourth section is devoted to special issues in the discipline.

    Each section includes learning objectives based on COAMFTE and CACREP standards, guided practice exercises, reflections from contributors on how to use the material in real practice, case scenarios, and a list of additional resources. Effectively blending instruction and application, Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy is ideal for courses in marriage and family counseling, family issues, and psychology for pre-service practitioners.
