"Although the title might suggest a relatively narrow targetaudience of family therapists, I feel certain that the fascinatingideas addressed here, coupled with the accessible style, would alsospeak to the experienced therapist, the trainee and the lay readeralike. By focusing on what is actually said in spousal, sibling andparental relationships, the authors invite the reader to reflect onthe powerful and often destructive myths, narratives, schemas- call them what you will - that underpin familysystems."
