Description

Socioculturally Attuned Family Therapy addresses the need
for socially responsible marriage and family therapy that
infuses diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout theory
and clinical practice. The text begins with a discussion of
societal systems, diversity, and socially just practice. The
authors then integrate principles of societal context, power,
and equity into the core concepts of ten major family
therapy models, paying close attention to the "how to’s"
of change processes through a highly diverse range of case
examples. The text concludes with descriptions of
integrative, equity-based family therapy guidelines that
clinicians can apply to their practice. Foreword by Fred Piercy.
