"The authors provide a refreshing perspective . . . This book can serve not only as a manual for this type of therapy, but, because it is easily readable, it can also be recommended to families undergoing this treatment."
-" Psychiatry, November 1,2002, No. 11, Vol. 41
"Cutting edge, thought-provoking, yet highly practical...this volume is a must-read for clinicians working with families and adolescents snared in a web of alienation, anger and defiance."
-William Bumberry, MD

Alienated, violent children and teenagers, desperate and worn-out parents: the destructive effects of unchecked defiant behavior are obvious. On a societal scale the problem of defiance is clearly reaching epidemic proportions, and punitive societal responses only seem to exacerbate the condition. In Defiance in the Family, however, the authors look closely at the constructive nature of defiance, its utility. They examine defiance as an expression of the child's worry for a family that is not working properly and as the child's means of protecting and preserving the inner self in the face of perceived threat. As such, defiance becomes a therapeutic opportunity and tool. With a firm clinical orientation and a wealth of case material, Keith, Connell, and Connell trace this symbolic experiential approach from initial contact and first interview to termination, including the three generation consultation and strategies for implementation. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

The authors themselves are "defiant" in the way they offer a refreshing view of the complex web of interpersonal relationships that we call "family". This stands in contrast to what they suggest as the prevailing tendency to compartmentalize, pathologize and medicate symptomatic teens, who are mostly a symbolic expression of family love in search of itself. The authors eloquently discuss the social/medical culture's love affair with the "quick fix", and offer us instead something more resonant and powerful. They offer us hope by conveying their deep respect for the complexities and ambiguities of family relationships. The authors are not engaged in a struggle to wrestle these ambiguities to the ground, but throughout the book, encourage the reader to embrace these ambiguities as a road that takes us closer to healing truths about families, and ourselves.
I think the broad appeal of this book lies in the combination of experience and humanity of the authors. Accomplished therapists will especially appreciate the chapters relating to the "self" of the therapist, including strategies for maintaining therapist equilibrium in the face of an acute family crisis.
Beginning and mid-level therapists will benefit from the authors "walking through" a therapy session, deliniating the components of the different therapy stages, and offering transcripts and vignettes which illustrate some of the "how to's" in conducting a family therapy session.
And finally, this book will serve as a beacon for families privileged to be living with a "defiant" child. Believing that "parents blame themselves enough", the authors instead offer a rich story about the many ways in which family members unintentionally wound each other, and give parents new insight into the meaning of their child's bewildering behavior. This makes it possible for parents to respond to the behavior in a new way--they will now have the pleasure of confusing their child!
I continue to enjoy this book as I would a good CD. I pick it up, open to any page, and savor the sounds coming from its pages. And, like a good piece of music, when it's over I am lighter, freer, more human.
Thank you for that, Drs. Keith and Connells.
