The papers in this book focus on many different aspects of the therapeutic relationship, including the self of the therapist, working cross-culturally and with language difference, impasse, risk taking, the place of research, and the influence of theory. Clinical examples illustrate successful as well as less succssful outcomes in therapy, and these clinical explorations make the book accessible to both systemic and non-systemic practitioners alike.

Reviews

'This book, which comprises contributions from many well-known authors, takes an important step in the field of family therapy towards linking many fruitful approaches. Sheila McNamee (2004) recently suggested that we have reached the point when we should be promiscuous rather than remaining faithful to one pure approach. This allows us to enrich our skills rather than confining them. Nevertheless, we still need a shared focus. What better place to start than by exploring the space between the therapist and client. So much of our thinking has centred on both what therapists do, or what families are . However, there is now an increasing interest in how family and therapists mutually influence each other in the therapeutic relationship.' - John Byng-Hall, from the Foreword The papers in this book focus on many different aspects of the therapeutic relationship, including the self of the therapist, working cross-culturally and with language difference, impasse, risk taking, the place of research, and the influence of theory.
