Steven Friedman's recent work, The New Language of Change, furthered the idea of therapy as a language-based process, one that is collaborative, hopeful, and competency based. Incorporating the innovative therapeutic principles and practices described in that work, this new volume focuses on the reflecting team approach to family therapy, offering in-depth guidelines for applying this unique approach in a variety of clinical contextsfrom outpatient clinics to managed-care organizations and hospit al and school settings. The methods of the reflecting team are based on a set of novel ideas for creating consulting networks that draw on the experience and expertise of clients - as well as audiences or witnesses - who are all treated as equal partners in the therapeutic process. Offering a treasure trove of innovative thinking, imaginative techniques, and useful guidelines, this volume will enrich the practice of family therapy. The book will enhance creativity in the work of psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, marriage and family therapists, psychiatric nurses, and mental health counselors. It also serves as an excellent graduate-level text.
