Exchanging voices : a collaborative approach to family therapy by Lynn Hoffman( )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in English and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this book, the authorhas not only compiled her writing for the last ten years, but she has written her own commentary about the personal and intellectual journey which led her from one paper to the next. The papers themselves read like a chronicle of the major ideas of the past ten years, but her commentary sheds a new light on the process of learning. It enables the reader to understand the way one woman has listened to the voices of a changing environment, and listened to the changes in herself in order to expand her thinking and her practice as a therapist
Dialogical meetings in social networks by Jaakko Seikkula( )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes and analyses two dialogic network practices: 'Open Dialogues' - developed for use in psychiatric crisis situations - and 'Anticipation Dialogues' - used in less acute situations such as multi-agency muddles where the helper systems are stuck. The book is both theoretical and detailed enough for practitioners who wish to apply the approaches to their work. It is meant for professionals in the fields of psycho-social work - including therapists to day care personnel, social workers to school teachers, - researchers, and academics. As the book touches upon dialogues with and within private networks, the book reaches out to clients, too

Foundations of family therapy : a conceptual framework for systems change by Lynn Hoffman( Book )

28 editions published between 1951 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Esta obra se distingue y destaca por el equilibrio entre experiencia personal y conocimiento enciclopédico; Lynn Hoffman hace un recuento de las diversas teorías que han imperado en el campo de la teoría familiar -desde las concepciones más conservadoras sobre la familia hasta las más recientes y controvertidas- con el fin de establecer una historia clara de las diversas tipologías con las que ha estudiado el núcleo familiar. Hoffman no busca dar res-puestas absolutas; su análisis parte, más bien, de una sola premisa: cuantos más elementos cuestionemos sobre la "naturaleza" de la familia, más fácil será acercarnos a un eficaz trata-miento de sus problemas
Family therapy : an intimate history by Lynn Hoffman( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book follows the journey of one highly curious and questing therapist from an instrumental, causal approach to family therapy to a collaborative, communal one. Because Lynn Hoffman has been in the field for almost forty years and has worked with so many of its influential thinkers, the book is also a history of family therapy's evolution. Her knowledge of family therapy is intimate and deep; her perspective is clear-eyed and often wryly humorous." "Readers will be reminded that, however big and impressive the theories, family therapy is very much a human endeavor. Hoffman revisits the experiences, ideas, and relationships that have informed her journey and presents them both as she perceived them at the time and as she perceives them now looking back. Through this process of reflective conversation, she creates not only a legacy out of the people and situations that acted on her most powerfully but also a counter tradition to the strategic approach that influenced her so strongly early in her career."--Jacket
