Note Description of the International Project.
Summary This book brings together a diverse set of clinicians, scholars, and researchers actively using systemic family therapy ideas within the context of ongoing or recent humanitarian intervention. The contributions focus on critical issues specific to the practice of family therapy within global mental health contexts, with a particular attention to the humanitarian sphere. Issues covered include treatment across cultures and language barriers, work in settings with covert and overt threats, practice in low-resource situations, and the creation of a family therapy program that relates to peace-building, reconciliation, and post-war discourse. The diverse group of authors contributes practical information and content specific to the training, supervision and/or delivery of family-based services, and offer specific principles and recommendations for family therapy practitioners and researchers.
