About the book
The scope of systemic family therapy differs and encompasses cross-cutting contemporary issues related to clinical health, disaster, humanitarianism, displacement, migration, sexuality and reproduction, sexual orientation and gender identity, conflict, and socio-economic concerns. This book, therefore, aims to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art advances in counseling and psychotherapies for families and couples in functional and dysfunctional settings, crisis settings, humanitarian zones, conflicts, and disaster settings. It aspires to showcase scholarly work on the practice of family systemic therapies by researchers, students, professionals, and trainees. The goal of this book is to further explore recent advances, new perspectives, and applications of systemic family therapies on issues such as basic concepts and tools, basic therapeutic skills, the therapeutic process, predominant models of family therapy, the principles of using a constructive and collaborative approach that enhances family resilience and competence in disaster-prone areas. The book will be a collection of scholarly writings on strengths-based therapies and contemporary models such as solution-focused, narrative and conversational therapies for family relationships.
