Medical Family Therapy

To celebrate the 30-year anniversary of McDaniel, Hepworth, and Doherty’s book Medical Family Therapy (Basic Books, 1992), the International Journal of Systemic Therapy will devote a special issue to the topic in late 2022. Since the publication of this groundbreaking book, medical family therapy has matured in practice, research, and training. We want to capture the diversity and development of this work.

Potential areas of focus for papers could include:

  • Innovations in practice
  • Models of collaborative/integrated care
  • Training and supervision of family therapists in medical settings
  • Medical family therapy in diverse settings
  • Medical family therapy with diverse populations
  • Global mental health
  • Case studies that illustrate best practices
  • Systematic reviews of literature

If you have any questions about this special issue, please contact the Editor, Dr. Todd Edwards, at [email protected] or 619-260-5963.
