For courses in Family Counseling, Family Therapy of Family Systems.

The authors provide a comprehensive student study guide that ties practice and reflection to Samuel T. Gladding's, Family Therapy: History, Theory, and Practice. The guide helps to deepen students' understanding of family therapy in three ways: 1) to review what they are learning in class and in their readings and test themselves on chapter content, 2) to apply what they have learned with case studies and exercises, and 3) to reflect on their learning in a journal format while responding to stimulating questions.
