Mastering family therapy : journeys of growth and transformation by Salvador Minuchin( Book )

In elegant clinical interplays, Minuchin, his colleagues Wai-Yung Lee and George Simon, and nine advanced students provide answers to such critical questions as: What does it take to master the art of family therapy? How do I create an effective personal style? How can I become an instrument for growth for troubled families? In Part I, Minuchin offers his candid assessment of the forms of family therapy that have emerged over the past fifty years, including his own structural approach. He shares his views on what makes a good family therapist and he explains why, if therapists are to become catalysts for change, they must learn to draw on their personal histories, their own sensibilities and sensitivities. Part II takes us behind the scenes to observe Minuchin in supervisory sessions with his students and the families they are treating

Examined was the nature of "psychosomatic" diabetes in children-a condition resistant to treatment and thought to be triggered by emotional upheaval. Continuous blood samples taken during the child's viewing parental conflict indicated that the psychosomatic diabetics were different in their stress reactions than control groups. Results of family task interviews also indicated characteristics of family interactions (such as undue overprotectiveness and extreme rigidity) as well as patterns of family conflict (including triangulation, the splitting of the spouses and the pressure on the child to choose sides).

The craft of family therapy : challenging certainties by Salvador Minuchin( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Family therapy trainees are inundated with a multitude of family therapy theories. They also have difficulty shifting from an individualistic view to one of seeing interactions and systems. How do therapists hone their own methods with all of these choices? And how do they learn how to best treat families with all of the focus being taken away from their clients and redirected instead on processes? Perhaps most importantly, how can they learn through an inductive process of exploring what has occurred during the therapeutic session? Veteran therapist and founder of Structural Family Therapy, Salvador Minuchin, goes back to basics with his two co-authors Michael D. Reiter and Charmaine Borda in The Craft of Family Therapy. In this book they teach readers basic communication and family therapy skills using some of Dr. Minuchin's most interesting and illuminating cases. Not only do readers re-learn basic techniques, such as reframing and joining, but they are treated to an in-depth commentary on each case, with Dr. Minuchin emphasizing the techniques he uses that allow him to refocus attention from the Identifying Patient to the family as a whole. The book ends with three supervision transcripts from Dr. Minuchin's students, whose commentary illuminates the struggles, fears, and insecurities that new family therapists face and how they can overcome them. Each of these chapters ends with a consultation interview that Dr. Minuchin conducted with each supervisees case family."--
