I have written two textbooks on Family Therapy.
The first, published in 1993, is a general overview of the thinking required to do good family therapy; it emphasizes family context and patterning, systems stability, and the use of questions to perturb the family structure. It was selected by the Behavioral Science Book Club as a Main Selection in December of 1993.

The second book, published in 1999, was co-authored with Shannon Greene. It outlines the major theoretical models in family therapy. Its synoptic structure makes it ideal for accompanying other, more general, texts, or as we have learned, it is frequently used as a study preparation guide for professionals taking their state certification examination for Marriage and Family Therapy.
