Family Therapy Beyond Postmodernism: Practice Challenges Theory


Add your own review!

Overview

Family Therapy Beyond Postmodernism examines postmodernism and its expression in family therapy, raising questions about realities and realness, the subjective process of truth, and the experience of self. It identifies difficulties in any sole reliance on narrative and social constructionist ideas, and advocates the value of family therapy practice of selected psychoanalytic ideas, in particular: attachment and the unconscious transference, countertransference, projective identification and understandings of time psychoanalytic ideas about thinking and containment in considering the therapeutic relationship in family therapy. This book offers a sustained critical discussion of contemporary family therapy knowledge, and develops a place for psychoanalytic ideas in systemic thinking and practice. It will be of great interest to psychotherapists, family therapists and other mental health professionals.

Reviews

'This is a very valuable contribution to the literature on family therapy. It is timely, clearly and engagingly written, and it advances family therapy by clarifying concepts which have been very problematic, and offering new ways forward.' - Stephen Frosh, Birkbeck College, London
