Attending to the Context of Family Treatment: Pitfalls and Prospects.
Doherty, William J.; Burge, Sandra K.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v13 n1 p37-47 Jan 1987
Argues that family therapy is failing to attend to the contexts in which family mental health services are provided. Presents a model for describing the institutional contexts of family mental health treatment in North America, and explores how these contexts influence family treatment, using 3 levels: primary, secondary, and tertiary care. Advises against translating treatment methods across levels. (Author/KS)
