Brief strategic family therapy (BSFT) is an evidence-based intervention for diagnosing and correcting patterns of family
interactions that are linked to distressing experiences and symptoms in children ages 6-18. This clinical guide shows
practitioners how to transform family interactions from conflictive to collaborative, from habitual to proactive, so that the love
trapped behind the anger can flourish, and family members can re-bond in loving and mutually caring relationships

Readers of this book will learn how to engage families that are reluctant to become involved in family therapy, and structure a
12-to 16-week intervention that will effect powerful behavioral change. Therapists help adults learn to collaborate with one another to nurture, guide, and handle misbehavior among children and teens.

Dozens of detailed clinical examples show practitioners how to navigate family complexities, and how to work through the challenging decision points they present.
