L'Abate, Luciano


The crisis state that personal and family problems seem to reach before professionals are consulted is unnecessary - the author of this volume argues that prevention is as much the key factor in family therapy as it is in other areas of health promotion. Building Family Competence develops long-term, theoretically-driven, comprehensive strategies to prevent and ameliorate family problems. L'Abate points to the growing importance of primary and secondary prevention as a method of meeting this need and proposes a series of evaluation and enrichment activities as well as a hierarchy of professionals to be employed at specific levels of family competence. To aid the study marriage and the prevention of marital problems, L'Abate - an acknowledged expert in family therapy - further advocates the establishment of a National Marriage Center, a unified programme for working with all types of family - whether in crisis or not.L'Abate, Luciano is the author of 'Building Family Competence: Primary and Secondary Prevention Strategies' with ISBN 9780803934887 and ISBN 0803934882.
