Family therapy is intended for addressing specific issues affecting the emotional health of the family members. This book comprises both theory and supervised practicum of counselling and family therapy in five chapters that deals with the concept, techniques, applications and skills involved in the process of counselling and families therapy. Further this book examines the professional approach to counsellor and therapist in counselling and therapy and ethical issues in the relationship between the client and the therapist.
