About this book


This landmark text describes research-informed practices and applications of Medical Family Therapy (MedFT) across an array of care environments and clinical populations. It is a timely release for a rapidly growing field and ably contextualizes MedFT within a myriad of areas, including family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, alcohol and drug treatment, community health centers, and military and veteran health systems.

 It includes the work of the most innovative leaders in the field, who expertly:

  • illustrate commonplace challenges with which MedFTs engage
  • describe the make-up of care teams tailored for each chapter’s focus environment
  • highlight fundamental knowledge and essential practical skillsets
  • discuss clinical, teaching, supervisory, research, and policy efforts

Clinical Methods in Medical Family Therapy is essential reading for the increasing numbers of behavioral health workforce members across a wealth of disciplines including family therapy, social work, and psychology. This text is an excellent addition to the literature for use in the growing number of MedFT degree granting and certificate programs.
