Book Description :

Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) is a profession that is expected to grow rapidly over the next ten years. This timely text provides the essential knowledge base for all facets of supervision in marriage and family therapy that is required to become an AAMFT Approved Supervisor. The book focuses specifically on the distinctive model of supervision used in Marriage and Family Therapy and further examines the unique supervisory issues arising within different approaches to the profession. Distinguished by its use of a single case example across chapters to help clarify how different theories differ and overlap, the book embraces the full range of theoretical approaches, in addition to featuring a “nuts and bolts” approach to the day-to-day fundamentals of MFT supervision. Grounded in the most up-to-date literature, the text discusses methods and issues of MFT supervision within multigenerational, structural, cognitive-behavioral, narrative, feminist, integrative, brief, and other supervision models. The text also surveys the most important and emerging settings and populations in which marriage and family therapists work, including medical and post-disaster trauma-informed practices. It covers legal and ethical issues and discusses how culture, gender, and ethnicity must be considered during the supervision process. The text also addresses how to tailor supervision to the supervisee’s developmental level. Examples of common supervision dilemmas vividly demonstrate foundational principles. With contributions from leading marriage and family therapy educators and experienced supervisors, the text is designed for therapists at both the Master’s and Doctoral levels who seek the Approved Supervisor Credential and for MFT faculty who teach the AAMFT supervision course. Key Features: Meets the learning requirements for AAMFT-mandated courses leading to certification as an approved supervisor Covers the fundamentals of supervision in the systemic context that lies at the heart of marriage and family therapy Covers supervision in the major approaches to MFT, including cognitive-behavioral, brief, narrative, structural, and other orientations Provides an illustrative case study across all supervision models to demonstrate the uniqueness and similarities of each approach Includes coverage of important populations and settings for MFT, such as medical and post-disasters.

This much-needed volume examines the process and practice of supervision in family therapy, with special emphasis on systemic practice.

These skills and others are applied to supervising therapy with individuals, couples, and families in areas including substance abuse, domestic violence, and research settings. Throughout the book, contributors share self-care strategies, so supervisors can stay engaged and creative, meet the many challenges entailed in their work, and avoid burnout. Among the topics covered: The resonance from personal life in family therapy supervision. Creating a dialogical culture for supervision. The supervisor’s power and moments of learning. Supervision and domestic violence: therapy with individuals, couples, and families. Systemic supervision with groups in child protection contexts. When the supervision process falters and breaks down: pathways to repair. The highly practical information in Supervision of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice is adaptable by readers to their particular supervisory or training needs. Novice and veteran mental health, social care, and social work practitioners and psychotherapists, will find it a substantial resource.

Book Description :

This up-to-date, highly readable, theory-based, and application-oriented book fills a crucial void in literature on couple therapy. Few books in the couple therapy market bridge the gap between theory and practice; texts tend to lean in one direction or the other, either emphasizing theory and research with little practical application, or taking a cookbook approach that describes specific techniques and interventions that are divorced from any conceptual or theoretical base. However, couples therapy requires a high degree of abstract/conceptual thinking, as well as ingenuity, inventiveness and skill on the part of the therapist. Case Studies in Couples Therapy blends the best of all worlds: clinical applications with challenging and diverse couples that have been derived from the most influential theories and models in couples and family therapy, all written by highly experienced and respected voices in the field. In Case Studies in Couples Therapy, readers will grasp the essentials of major theories and approaches in a few pages and then see how concepts and principles are applied in the work of well-known clinicians. The case studies incorporate a wide variety of couples from diverse backgrounds in a number of different life situations. It is simultaneously narrow (including specific processes and interventions applied with real clients) and broad (clearly outlining a broad array of theories and concepts) in scope, and the interventions in it are directly linked to theoretical perspectives in a clear and systematic way. Students and clinicians alike will find the theoretical overview sections of each chapter clear and easy to follow, and each chapter’s thorough descriptions of effective, practical interventions will give readers a strong sense of the connections between theory and practice.

Book Description :

Family Therapy Supervision in Extraordinary Settings showcases the dynamism of systemic family therapy supervision/consultation as it expands beyond typical and historical traditions. In this unique collection, contributors write about their innovations, unexpected learnings, and “perfect accidents” in the context of systemic therapy. These essays highlight creative approaches to supervision, present a wide variety of clinical cases and therapy settings, and demonstrate how training takes place in real time. Each chapter illustrates increasingly diverse settings in which systemic family therapy services are delivered, whether in public mental health care for families across high-, low-, and middle-income countries, in areas of armed conflict or instability due to political violence or war, or stable, liberal democracies with robust public mental health systems. Each setting of supervision is extraordinary in the way it supports family therapy service delivery. Given the wide variation in access to systemic family therapy services, and the diverse settings in which systemic family therapy services are delivered, a set of brief, specific, and lively cases is called for that focus on the dynamic nature of a family therapy supervision and consultation interaction and its influence on clients, trainees, and supervisors. Working as a family therapist in the world today, an era of global mental health, is as full of wonder and challenge as it was in the time family therapy originated as a profession. It is thus no accident that supervision and consultation work is just as extraordinary. This book will be essential reading for family therapy and counseling supervisors, as well as a helpful reference for supervisees.

Book Description :

The Contemporary Relational Supervisor is an empirically based, academically sophisticated, and learner-friendly book on the cutting edge of couple and family therapy supervision. Appropriate for master’s and doctoral level students, as well as experienced clinicians who wish to learn about supervision, it emphasizes system and relational thinking and intervention, while privileging the diversity of training system members, their realities, experiences, and interpretations of life. The authors are attuned throughout the text to how and where clinical training and services are provided, and to whom, and provide detailed literature reviews for readers. These factors assist their discussion of the socio-historic development of the AAMFT supervision designation, and the fundamentals, contexts, philosophy, relationships, and pragmatics of CFT supervision. They also discuss major models and approaches, evaluation, ethical and legal issues, and therapist development. Perhaps most important is their presentation of methods that help tailor and extend supervision practices to meet the clinical, institutional, and economic realities that CF therapists navigate. Readers are engaged by the discussions and exercises at the end of each chapter, which help them to feel more grounded in a topic, to have their own voices heard, and to be granted insight through experiencing multiple realities. This valuable reference prepares the next wave of cutting-edge CFT supervisors–those who are knowledgeable, skilled, and realistically confident.
