Product description

Systems-centered therapy (SCT) brings an innovative approach to clinical practice. Developed by Yvonne Agazarian, SCT introduces a theory and set of methods that put systems ideas into practice. The collection of articles in this book illustrates the array of clinical applications in which SCT is now used. Each chapter introduces particular applications of SCT theory or methods with specific examples from practice that help the theory and methods come alive for the reader across a variety of clinical contexts. This book will be especially useful for therapists and clinical practitioners interested in sampling SCT, for those who learn best with clinical examples, and for anyone with a serious interest in learning the systems-centered approach.

Review quote

'This book, which introduces the clinical application of SCT, will certainly find a wide audience. Several books have been published on SCT over the years. In my view, this one is the best introduction, not only to the methods and techniques, but also to the theory. It is written in excellent pedagogical style and is full of examples.Those who have never experienced SCT will find it hard to resist signing up for a workshop or a group to try it out for themselves. For people with some experience of SCT, this book will provide the cognitive structure to enable them to deepen their understanding.'- Christer Sandahl, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden and President of the International Association of Group Psychotherapy
