McNeil, Cheryl B.; Herschell, Amy D.
Family Relations, v47 n3 p259-62 Jul 1998

Possible strategies include increased structure, attendance contracts, brief assessments, realistic treatment goals, a focus on one issue, and to help families value therapy. Empirical research and discussion on what works in complex situations is needed. A sample attendance contract is appended. (Author/EMK)
