The classic groundbreaking book on family therapy by acclaimed experts Augustus Y. Napier, PhD, and Carl Whitaker, MD.

This extraordinary book presents scenarios of one family's therapy experience and explains what underlies each encounter. You will discover the general patterns that are common to all families-stress, polarization and escalation, scapegoating, triangulation, blaming, and the diffusion of identity-and you will gain a vivid understanding of the intriguing field of family therapy.

I read this book because it was a mandatory read for my graduate class. This book explores why the ethic code was enacted. Especially when Carl wrestled with one of his clients(a child). Family therapy is what a lot of people need to break transgenerational traumas and toxic ways. This book addressed a lot and opened my eyes to things we do, scapegoating, and other things. All therapists should definitely read this book. #Book16of2023
