Jerome Levin is impressive for his breadth of knowledge and his clarity of expression. This book is at once up-to-the-minute and respectful to the legacy of psychotherapy. It will serve well as a text for beginners, yet it contains enough nuggets of special insight to allow it to sit comfortably on the shelf of experienced practitioners. -- Peter D. Kramer, M.D. Blending erudition, clinical intuition, and common sense, Dr. Levin presents an original formulation of family therapy theory and technique specifically tailored to deal with the unique problems of the addicted family. This is an achievement of the first order, a gift to a field in need of new approaches. -- David E. Scharff, M.D., International Psychotherapy Institute and the IPA Committee on Family and Couple Psychoanalysis
