Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

As the study of the family has expanded, the need for an up-to-date volume that brings together and defines major salient words, phrases and concepts has similarly grown. The updated edition of this unique resource provides an expanded yet compact and handy reference for all practitioners, researchers and students in the fields of family psychology and psychotherapy.Each entry includes a definition of the term, an example of its use, the origin of the term, an early source using the term and, if pertinent, a recent source. `Borrowed' terms from other fields such as family law, sex therapy, clinical child psychology and group psychology are also included.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


Although aimed at graduate students and practitioners in psychology, counseling, or family therapy, this excellent encyclopedic dictionary will be a useful addition to any undergraduate psychology collection. The first edition, Family Therapy: Basic Concepts and Terms (1985), interpreted the discipline broadly; this edition continues that policy and reflects the diverse interests of practitioners in the field. Terms were selected for inclusion from those frequently encountered by the authors (all practitioners with strong academic interests) in their personal reading of the literature of family therapy and family psychology. No one school is emphasized and, where appropriate, terms are selected from related disciplines. Each term or phrase is fully defined, examples are frequently given to expand on the definition, and at least one bibliographic reference is included for each entry. A consolidated list of all cited materials is given at the end. An appendix lists and describes professional organizations and publications and, in the process, gives a brief history of this very new discipline. Highly recommended for collections serving undergraduates and graduates in psychology and sociology.
