Pulling It All Together: The Vorset Family.
Kaplan, David M.
The previous chapters of this book have looked at how to conceptualize family work, presented a process for conducting family counseling, and examined ways to fit this process into the counseling skills counselors have already developed in working with individual clients. Also discussed were approaches and techniques for establishing a relationship with families, assessing family issues related to the presenting problem, selecting family interventions, assessing family interventions, and reaching closure with families. To pull together all of this information, the author presents the Vorset Family, a composite of many families he has worked with over the years. The chapter provides a snapshot of the course of therapy with this family. (GCP)
