Milan Systemic Family Therapy by Luigi Boscolo

Book Description

This long-awaited book is the first to offer a complete and clear presentation of the therapy of the Milan Associates, Luigi Boscolo and Gianfranco Cecchin. Based on cybernetic theory, their work has had dramatic success in helping families change behavior. This practical and enlightening book uses clinical cases and the fascinating conversations among the four authors to examine the relationship between Milan theory and practice.Transcripts of sessions conducted by Boscolo and Cecchin--which include a family that is hiding a history of incest and one dominated by an anorectic girl--provide vivid examples of family interaction and therapeutic imagination. In the accompanying conversations with Boscolo and Cecchin about these sessions, Hoffman and Penn take us behind the scenes to show how the therapists think through and conduct their therapy. These highly readable conversations clarify the essentials of the therapy, including hypothesizing, circular questioning, positive connotation, and crafting interventions. Like Milan therapy itself, the interviews are recursive; new ideas about the therapy feed back into the conversations and stimulate further revelations. A lengthy introduction sets the Milan approach in historical context, and introductions to the individual cases highlight the main ideas.

Systemic Therapy with Individuals by Luigi Boscolo Systemic Therapy with Individuals, Paperback (January 1996)

Until recently, systemic therapy has been identified with family therapy. This no longer applies; the systemic approach and its techniques can now be used - with profit - in therapy with individuals. This book introduces and describes the first adaptation of the systemic model to the individual context.
