The Family Crucible: The Intense Experience of Family Therapy is a classic work in the field of family psychotherapy. It tells the story of how family therapists guided the Brice family out of their collective crisis. Using the Brice family crisis as a case study, the authors introduce the practice of family therapy and touch on many issues families face, including long-standing imbalances, triangular relationships, and the influence of the parents’ families of origin.
