The first book to present DSM-5 diagnoses within a systems context

The first text to present DSM-5 diagnoses within a relational perspective, DSM-5 and Family Systems delivers timely content aimed at training marriage and family therapists, clinical mental health counselors, and other systems-oriented practitioners.
