As leaders in the field of family therapy, The Family Institute strives to share the knowledge of its therapists. Recently, five of our staff members were involved in the publication of the Handbook of Family Therapy, a comprehensive guide for family therapy that helps practitioners, researchers and students understand the past and next evolution of family therapy. Jay Lebow, PhD, served as co-editor in addition to author of three chapters on aspects of couple and family therapy. William Pinsof, PhD, Doug Breunlin, MSSA, LCSW, LMFT, William Russell, MSW, LSCW, LMFT, and Jacob Goldsmith, PhD, also contributed to this authoritative reference by discussing facets of family therapy and The Family Institute’s model, Integrated Problem Centered Metaframeworks. This handbook propels the Institute as a key contributor to the field.
