The systems approach to the family is based on the assumptions that there is equality between men and women in the family, and that women and men are treated equally in clinical practice. The contributors to this book challenge these hidden assumptions, discussing the issues from both a conceptual and clinical viewpoint. They argue strongly that questions of gender and power should be central to family therapy training and practice.

Author Biography

Rosine Jozef Perelberg, PhD is Visiting Professor at University College, London. She is a training analyst and supervisor; a Fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society; and a member of the Institute of Family Therapy, London. Between 1981 and 1991 she worked as a Senior Family Therapist at the Marlborough Family Service, and also at the Maudsley Hospital, London. For ten years she was a member of the Young Adults Research Group at the Anna Freud Centre, who treated young adults who had suffered breakdown. She was named one of the ten Women of the Year for 2006 by the Brazilian National Council of Women. Ann Miller is a consultant clinical psychologist and family therapist who has worked and taught at the Marlborough Family Service in London for most of her career. She was instrumental, with others, in setting up the University College London Diploma in Family Therapy, which provided a non-traditional pathway into the profession, and in creating the Marlborough Cultural Therapy Centre, successfully providing a therapeutic service since 1995 for black and minority ethnic individuals, children and families who would otherwise have not engaged with services.
