"The important thing is not to stop questioning." -Albert Einstein The Art of the Question extends the range of cognitive-behavioral therapy by elaborating on the ways that internal questions program thought, emotion, and behavior. Describing a groundbreaking, question-centered approach to therapy, the concepts and practices in this book are essential for facilitating successful counseling and therapy. The Art of the Question contains everything therapists need to add question-centered methods to their therapeutic toolkits. The question-driven nature of choice is one of the pillars of question-centered therapy. The Art of the Question offers practical psycho-educational tools to help clients create better choices, be more effective in the ways they make choices, and take responsibility for their decisions. Clients learn to ask questions leading to solutions and positive possibilities, rather than those focusing on problems, negativity, and limitations. They discover that healing, growth, creativity, and change are often catalyzed through the simple act of changing their questions. The Art of the Question includes: * Question strategies for win-win marriages * Many compelling clinical cases and vignettes * Detailed methods for helping clients discover and transform the silent, implicit questions that program their lives * A framework for asking questions of clients at each stage of the therapeutic process * Illustrated psycho-educational materials for clients The Art of the Question contains everything therapists need to incorporate question-centered methods into their therapeutic tool kits, making it an essential resource and reference guide for all mental health professionals.

Like all complex living systems, a family, during its life course, proceeds through predictable stages of development. Yet every family is different, its uniqueness defined and continually redefined by an open-ended array of structural, biological, and sociocultural variables. And, as with all living things, a family s continued well-being depends upon its ability to adapt to changes arising from both within the family system and without. First postulated in the 1940s, these basic ideas constitute the conceptual core of modern family development theory. From them has blossomed an impressive body of knowledge about family health and illness, without which much of the progress occurring in family therapy over the past half-century would not have been possible. This book does much to promote continued progress in the practical application of family development theory by affording family therapists an unparalleled opportunity to acquaint themselves with the most important trends in family development theory to emerge over the past decade. In it you will find contributions from leading theorists, researchers, and clinicians, arranged so as to provide a systematic treatment of the latest thinking on family development seen from both the systemic viewpoint and that of individual members of the system. Comprehensive in scope, this book explores the patterns, processes, and dynamics inherent in "traditional" families, as well as in important structural variants such as single-parent and gay and lesbian families and families with special needs and problems, including divorce, physical abuse, and disabilities. Since progress in the social sciences is as much about formulating viable new ways of seeing as it is about determining quantifiable facts, the editors offer equal time to an array of influential and sometimes radically conflicting schools of thought, including sociobiology, social psychology, constructionism, multiculturalism, postmodernism, and feminism. Mainstream family therapists will find much in this handbook that they will consider controversial. In some cases readers may even be outraged by the views expressed. Yet, thanks to the high caliber of scholarship, intellect, and professionalism evidenced throughout, none of the ideas advanced in Handbook of Family Development and Intervention can be easily dismissed, and all have something of value to offer the thoughtful, dedicated family therapist. Handbook of Family Development and Intervention is a valuable professional resource for all couples and family therapists. It is also must reading for graduate students in family psychology, family therapy, social work, and counseling. "In this magnificent volume, the editors make a major contribution that integrates individual and family development concepts and therapeutic applications by bringing together scholarly yet fresh contributions. The inclusion of various family forms and of families with special needs makes this volume especially relevant to the treatment of contemporary families as we enter the new millennium. This superb Handbook should be mandatory reading and an excellent reference for teachers, researchers, and therapists at all levels of development." Celia J. Falicov, PhD President, 1999 2001 American Family Therapy Academy

An important breakthrough in the treatment of one of the most challenging classes of psychological disorders This book introduces psychotherapists to Integrative Relational Psychotherapy (IRP), a dynamic new approach to the diagnosis and treatment of personality disorders that capitalizes on recent major advances in the fields of personology and therapy systems theory. Combining a rigorous biopsychosocial model of personality with a relational framework for patient assessment and treatment planning, IRP is designed to produce rapid and sustained systemic change in patients suffering from virtually all DSM-identified personality disorders. With the help of numerous case studies and vignettes drawn from his own practice, Dr. Jeffrey Magnavita provides a remarkably lucid, fully referenced presentation of the theoretical underpinnings of IRP. He arms you with tested relational assessment tools, psychometrics, and interviewing techniques that can easily be incorporated into individual, couples, and family therapy practices. And he develops clear guidelines for creating customized, highly focused treatment strategies--for individual clients or families--that integrate an array of systemic intervention modalities to be administered sequentially or in combination.

The first edition of Marilee Adams's book introduced a surprising, life-altering truth: any of us can literally change our lives simply by changing the questions we ask, especially those we ask ourselves. We can ask questions that open us to learning, connection, satisfaction, and success. Or we can ask questions that impede progress and keep us from getting results we want. Asking ''What great things could happen today?'' creates very different expectations, moods, and energy than asking ''What could go wrong today?'' Many readers reported that they found themselves asking better questions before they even finished reading the book! This is the key insight that the book's hero, Ben Knight, learns from his executive coach as the story of his transformative journey unfolds, eventually leading to breakthroughs that save his career as well as his marriage. His success rests on having become a ''question man'' and an inquiring leader rather than a judgmental, know-it-all answer man.In this extensively revised second edition, Adams has made the story even more illuminating and helpful, adding three new chapters as well as three powerful new tools. Change Your Questions, Change Your Life is practical yet simple, giving readers an entertaining, step-by-step guide to a technique that will transform their personal and professional lives. Great results really do begin with great questions - Marilee Adams shows you how to ask them!

Despite the clinical importance of identifying and treating dysfunctional relationship patterns, traditional classification schemes - like the DSM-IV and ICD - have long neglected the relational component of mental health. In this groundbreaking new book, leading couples and family clinicians and researchers present a clinically-based typology of relational disorders. Already hailed as one of the most important books of the decade, this timely volume examines the role of diagnosis in couples and family therapy, and offers clinical criteria for diagnosing a broad spectrum of relational disorders and dysfunctional family patterns.
