Case Studies in Couple and Family Therapy is one of the first casebooks to have been written from the perspective of the early career therapist and demonstrates how key issues in therapy occur for both clients and supervisees. The book brings together chapters from trainee therapists alongside expert commentary from the editors who have extensive experience in supervising new therapists. Covering a range of self-of-the-therapist issues, these case studies navigate the complexities of presenting problems, multiple systems involvement, the complication of past traumas, and working in a medical environment, all of which beginning therapists are often unprepared to face. The editors provide introductions to each case study, as well as clinical suggestions and topics for discussion in supervision. Foregrounding the issues and challenges of the therapist-in-training, Case Studies in Couple and Family Therapy is a valuable resource for developing couple and family therapists, as well as supervisors and educators in the field.
