Abstract

Behavioural family therapy in the treatment of adult mental illness has developed since 1970. In addition to its use in the management of schizophrenia and depression, it has been employed in most areas of psychopathology, such as mental retardation, anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, children’s problems, and in the management of diabetes and coronary artery disease. In other words, the approach is generic.
