Becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist is a practical "how to" guide designed to help trainee therapists bridge the gap between classroom and consulting room. Drawing on over 40 years' experience, Eugene Mead demonstrates that for supervision to result in the positive changes needed to create successful client outcomes, therapists must focus on two basic factors: a good supervisory relationship, and attention to the task of improving therapy skills.
