The Origins of Family Psychotherapy: The NIMH Family Study Project

Hardback
This book presents original papers from Bowen's NIMH Family Study Project with commentaries concerning the origins and developments of family psychotherapy and the beginnings of a new type of therapeutic relationship. Far from being historical relics, the Family Study Project documents are relevant today in understanding how theory is important in the conduct of therapy, and in the ongoing challenges to think systems with intense family problems.
