Abstract

This article focuses on the clinical and conceptual contributions of three major schools of family therapy to the treatment of black families: 1) structural/eco-structural, 2) Bowenian, and 3) paradoxical/strategic/systemic. It is important to note that although these are presented here as distinct schools, there has already been considerable cross-fertilization within these models, with many family therapists contributing to more than one approach. Ways in which these models can be integrated into an overall treatment approach with black families are discussed.
