101 Interventions in Family Therapy
Hardcover      ISBN: 0866569022
A compendium of tips, anecdotes, and informal case synopses contributed by family therapists who responded to an invitation to share their favorite interventions. Arrangement is random, for lack of a suitable way to arrange widely divergent contributions. The lack of an index was a deliberate decision ostensibly to avoid systematic usage of the book as a reference; it's supposed to be read for fun, like a collection of short stories or humor pieces. Paper edition (unseen), $32.95. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Couples
A Clinician's Guide to Using Mindfulness, Values & Schema Awareness to Rebuild Relationships
Paperback      ISBN: 162625480x
Relationships take work. In this much-anticipated book, best-selling author Matthew McKay and psychologist Avigail Lev present the ten most common relationship schemas, and provide an evidence-based acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) treatment protocol for professionals to help clients overcome the barriers that hold them back in their relationships. Romantic relationships are a huge challenge for many of us, as evidenced by our high divorce rates. But what is it that causes so much pain and discord in many relationships? In Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Couples, Matthew McKay and Avigail Lev provide the first ACT-based treatment protocol for couples that identifies the ten most common relationship schemas—and the coping behaviors they drive—to help you guide clients through their pain and toward solutions that reflect the needs and values of the couple. Rather than working to stop relationship schemas from being triggered or to reduce schema pain, you’ll be able to help your clients observe and name what triggers their rigid coping behaviors when their schemas are activated. And by learning new skills when they’re triggered, your clients will be able to replace avoidant and coping behaviors with values-based action for the betterment of the relationship. By making your clients’ avoidant behavior the target of treatment— as opposed to their thoughts and beliefs—this skills-based guide provides the tools you need to help your clients change how they respond to their partner.
Aesthetics of Change
Aesthetics of Change
Paperback      ISBN: 1572308303
The fundamental concern of psychotherapy is change. While practitioners are constantly greeted with new strategies, techniques, programs, and interventions, this book argues that the full benefits of the therapeutic process cannot be realized without fundamental revision of the concept of change itself. Applying cybernetic thought to family therapy, Bradford P. Keeney demonstrates that conventional epistemology, in which cause and effect have a linear relationship, does not sufficiently accommodate the reciprocal nature of causation in experience. Written in an unconventional style that includes stories, case examples, and imagined dialogues between an epistemologist and a skeptical therapist, the volume presents a philosophically grounded, ecological framework for contemporary clinical practice.
