This compendium of case studies is an exciting way for readers to learn about new approaches in this rapidly changing field. "Case Book in Family Therapy" is both practical and timely, and is both empirically and theoretically based. As new theories in family therapy rapidly emerge, these case studies examine the gamut of therapy models, including Solution-Focused Therapy, Collaborative Language Systems, and Narrative Theory. The Casebook also examines the increasing number of integrative approaches that blend together various existing therapy models based on empirical research and practical experience. This integrative coverage reflects the greater convergence, conceptually and technically, of distinct theories of family therapy. The diverse scope of authors contributing to the Casebook all have extensive clinical and empirical experience with their selected theory, and some have had an affiliation with the major training center where specific theories have evolved. To bring their areas of expertise into the students' realm, contributing authors include extensive verbatims and commentaries that detail how the theories are implemented. Lawson and Prevatt sought, and found, a variety of couple and conjoint family cases that represent typical cases seen by practitioners.
