    schema:reviewBody ""This book follows the journey of one highly curious and questing therapist from an instrumental, causal approach to family therapy to a collaborative, communal one. Because Lynn Hoffman has been in the field for almost forty years and has worked with so many of its influential thinkers, the book is also a history of family therapy's evolution. Her knowledge of family therapy is intimate and deep; her perspective is clear-eyed and often wryly humorous." "Readers will be reminded that, however big and impressive the theories, family therapy is very much a human endeavor. Hoffman revisits the experiences, ideas, and relationships that have informed her journey and presents them both as she perceived them at the time and as she perceives them now looking back. Through this process of reflective conversation, she creates not only a legacy out of the people and situations that acted on her most powerfully but also a counter tradition to the strategic approach that influenced her so strongly early in her career."--Jacket." ;
