Families in Focus: Finding Solutions to Difficult Problems, presents a new way of working with families and groups, creating a helping context to reduce stress and facilitate communication. Drawing on their experience of providing family therapy, the authors have written this book to help families solve or resolve problems that have the potential to escalate into conflict.

They explain how this can be achieved in a single three-hour meeting by exploring the difficulties that are creating dissension, encouraging the family members to listen to each other and empowering them to reach new decisions. Issues such as placing a relative in long-term care, selling the family home, challenging family legacies and confronting secret histories are explored through case histories, thereby demonstrating just how effective this once-off meeting can be.
