Transitioning from Individual to Family Counseling. Family Psychology and Counseling Series.
Huber, Charles H., Ed.
Transitioning from individual to family counseling can be difficult because, as one moves between these two approaches to helping, it becomes necessary to view all aspects of behavior differently. This monograph offers a sampling of professional views on the various challenges confronting a counselor in such a transition. Essays include: (1) "Family Counselors as Artists and Scientists" (Samuel T. Gladding); (2) "Equilibrium: A Conceptual Context for Family Counseling" (Peter A. Powers and Charles H. Huber); (3) "Family-of-Origin Work for the Family Counselor" (Volker Thomas and Phil Striegel); (4) "Cultivating the Language of Play: The Young Child in Family Counseling" (C. Wayne Jones); (5) "Mexican-American Families and Acculturation: Implications for Family Counseling" (Sylvia Soto-Fulp and others); (6) "Community as Family: The Multiple-Family Contexts of Gay and Lesbian Clients" (Darryl Dahlheimer and Jennifer Feigal); (7) "Family Counseling without the Family: Working with an Individual Client" (Patricia G. Driskill); (8) "The Family-School Intervention Team (FSIT) Model: A Metalevel and Multisystemic Approach" (William H. Quinn); (9) "Individual to Family-Systems Thinking in the Health-Care Context" (Kathy Cole Kelly); (10) "Playing with Contextual Complexity: Relational Consultation with Family Businesses" (Douglas G. Flemons and Patricia M. Cole); and (11) "Family Counseling in a Private-Practice Setting: An Interview with Frederick Brewster" (Charles H. Huber). (RJM)
