Summary

Systems Consultation challenges two basic assumptions of family therapy: first, that what family therapists should be doing is curing pathology; second, that family interactions can be understood by focusing on families to the exclusion of larger systems. In asking whether therapy is the best and only model for what family therapists do, this book registers a definitive no. In its place it offers a systems consultation role that more accurately captures the range of activities therapists can and currently do engage in.
