"This book is excellent -- clear, well organised, and very easy to find your way about!" - Arlene Vetere, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Surrey, UK "Mark Rivett & Eddy Street can be congratulated for producing a work which is definitely above par to many contemporary texts. I wish I had had access to a book like this when I was training in family therapy, yet I am now fortunate to have it sitting on my bookshelf." - Dion Leeuwenburg, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Family Therapy, No. 2, 2010
