The sixth volume in the more focused Innovations in Clinical Practice series concentrates on assessment and intervention techniques when more than one person is therapeutically involved.  The volume contains a number of therapist guides and patient handouts in addition to the outstanding articles on a wide variety of subjects pertinent to the topic (see Table of Contents below).  Other books in this series are Focus on Children & Adolescents, Focus on Violence Treatment & Prevention, Focus on Adults, Focus on Health and Wellness, and Focus on Sexual Health.

"I found Innovations in Clinical Practice: Focus on Group, Couples, and Family Therapy to be an excellent source of new ideas, new modes of thinking, and new ways to practice....  The authors provide very specific, detailed interventions, in clear and lucid language, usually with vivid and forceful case examples.  All of them seem to have a fundamental optimism and a 'can do' attitude, which I think is crucial to our work as clinicians....  Clearly the authors have had successes with their work, and they convey a realistic hopefulness that readers, too, can have success with these approaches....  Given the difficulty of clinical practice, we, and our clients, all need doses of hope to keep us going in this field. Innovations will give the reader some of that hope and encouragement.  I would highly recommend this book"
