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

14 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Psychosomatic diabetic children and their families by National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 2014 in English and held by 80 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."--

Family healing : tales of hope and renewal from family therapy by Salvador Minuchin( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The family, the source of our greatest hope for happiness, sometimes turns out to be the source of our greatest disappointment. Now, in the culmination of his lifework, world-renowned family therapist Salvador Minuchin reveals how his own personal experiences shaped his understanding of the family and his ability to cut through the knots of family dynamics. The grandson of Russian Jewish Emigrants to Argentina, Minuchin grew up secure in a closely knit extended family within a larger society of outspoken anti-Semitism and dictatorial politics. The impact of his formative experiences - anti-Peronist revolutionary activities which landed him in jail, service in the Israeli army in 1947-48, work with displaced children of the Holocaust and with poor black and Puerto Rican delinquents - helped forge his development as theorist and famed clinician. Where others saw only chaos and confusion, Minuchin found structure: members of families shadow dancing within invisible boundaries and systems. As he tells the dramatic stories of families who have sought his help, Minuchin reveals the hidden rules that trap family members in stifling roles. His confrontational yet compassionate style of therapy unlock the self-defeating patterns which foster marital conflict, difficulties with children, problems adjusting to old age and retirement, and other crises at each stage of the family life cycle. Each therapeutic encounter is a compelling dialogue between Minuchin's wisdom and a family struggling with pain but resistant to change. His creative and daring solutions to familiar family crises offer insight into the workings of all families. In this book of inspiration and hope, Minuchin shows us the hidden strengths to be found in the heart of the family itself
