Editors: Karin Jordan (George Fox University)
Book Description:
Since the beginning of the concepts of family therapy, mental health professionals have known that the family - the system - is a powerful source of support for change or a powerful force for resistance to change. Some professionals work with individuals, some with families and some with groups. However, all work with the context of the systems – family, group, community, country, etc. Students, especially beginning students, are overwhelmed and confused at the variety of approaches to working with clients. Many programs introduce students to individual as well as systems concepts in the course of training. Students need assistance in learning this variety of theories. They need to be able to compare and contrast theories and techniques to determine when and where to utilize the best skills in order to facilitate client change.

Dr. Karin Jordan has compiled a comprehensive text that enables the students to discover each theory as it is presented in its purist form. The text is accessible yet the content provides comprehensive knowledge of each theory. Dr. Jordan has brought together the master educators and clinicians in our fields to write about their particular expertise.

Each chapter stands alone as an in depth presentation of a theory. Each writer is obviously an expert in his or her particular choice of theory. Students learn in a manner that informs but does not overpower. As the student continues through the semester or year to utilize the full text, they begin to grasp the larger context of theory and the importance of theory to technique. The student integrates the similarities and differences throughout all the work that we do as social workers, counselors, marriage and family therapists, and psychologists.
