Nock, Steven L. (2000): The Divorce of Marriage and Parenthood. In: Journal of Family Therapy 22 (3): S. 245-263.

abstract: Marriage is a template for domestic life and the problems that arise in it. The patterned assumptions that traditionally defined marriage gave substance to the family. These assumptions have become less compelling over the course of a century. In this paper, I suggest how and why this has happened. I focus on the meaning of parenthood and its relationship to marriage. In the course of a century, parenthood has been redefined as a rational choice governed by calculation. As a result, childbearing, pregnancy, marriage and parenthood have been redefined. Their relationships to one another have, to varying degrees, been altered. Marriage is an institutionalized way to care for the babies that once came, inevitably, as a result of sexual intercourse. What becomes of marriage when sex no longer produces babies? The answer is that everything about marriage and the family changes. Such changes help explain the rise of professional family therapy and related fields.

Carr, Alan (2000): Evidence-Based Practice in Family Therapy and Systemic Consultation II. In: Journal of Family Therapy 22 (3): S. 273-295.

abstract: Evidence for the effectiveness of family-based treatments from critical literature reviews and controlled trials is considered for the following list of adult-focused problems: marital distress, psychosexual problems, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, alcohol abuse, chronic pain, and the family management of neurologically impaired adults. Evidence-based practices which may be used within the context of marital and family therapy and systemic consultation arising from the review are discussed.

Ma, Joyce L.C. (2000): Treatment Expectations and Treatment Experience of Chinese Families Towards Family Therapy: appraisal of a common belief. In: Journal of Family Therapy 22 (3): S. 296-307.

abstract: This paper reports results of a qualitative study on family therapy conducted in Hong Kong, which aims to identify Chinese families’ treatment expectations, delineate their subjective experience and the outcome in treatment. By comparing the expectations, the experience and the outcome, this study examines and challenges the belief that the practice of family therapy should necessarily be fundamentally adapted to be ‘culture-specific’, an assumption that has hitherto been untested and possibly based on overgeneralized cultural stereotyping. This study provides empirical evidence for family therapists who have interests in working with local and overseas Chinese families to improve their practice.

Fidell, Beverley (2000): Exploring the Use of Family Therapy with Adults with a Learning Disability. In: Journal of Family Therapy 22 (3): S. 308-323.

abstract: Clients with a learning disability have received little attention so far from psychotherapeutic services. Systems thinking seems to have obvious potential for this group, given the stresses which such a disability puts on the client and his family and the variety of different organizations with which they become involved. This paper describes the use of family therapy within a clinic setting and considers similarities to and differences from general family therapy practice. Ways of overcoming communication difficulties are highlighted, as is the need to redress the power imbalance within the therapeutic situation.

Strickland-Clark, Lisa, David Campbell & Rudi Dallos (2000): Children’s and Adolescent’s Views on Family Therapy. In: Journal of Family Therapy 22 (3): S. 324-341.

abstract: Family therapy has made a considerable contribution to our understanding of the experiences of children and families and especially how various symptoms can be understood as their response to distressing family dynamics. Though family therapy has found ways of alleviating children’s distress we still know relatively little about how children experience the process of family therapy. Such knowledge is important for ethical as well as pragmatic reasons - to be able to offer a more sensitive and effective experience. This paper reports a study employing qualitative methods whereby children were interviewed about their experience of family therapy. Semi-structured interviews were conducted after family therapy sessions, and children were invited to recall what they perceived to be helpful and unhelpful. Helpful events or moments were then identified and replayed on the videotape of the sessions to assist children’s memory. The results suggest a diversity of experiences according to the children’s ages, gender and role in the family. Some common assumptions were challenged by the findings, for example, that some children preferred more directive and focused aspects of the therapy, rather than systemic questions which could inspire feelings of confusion and inadequacy.
