Evaluating and Treating Families: The McMaster Approach, by Christine E. Ryan and colleagues, is a book that I would have welcomed as a marriage and family therapy trainee. Even though I trained as a family physician in a biopsychosocially oriented family medicine residency, I was still unprepared for the complexity of the material I learned during my introductory course in family systems. Ryan and colleagues’ text provides a comprehensive and systematic description of the historical, theoretical, methodological, and research bases for the McMaster model of family therapy, beginning with the description of their model for normal family functioning.
