Examines the primary forms of professional regulation that impact marital and family therapy. In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in professional regulation in psychotherapy, including marriage and family therapy. This book describes the main sources of that regulation, including governmental bodies, professional associations, and other influences on regulation, including the legal system and the managed care system. The book details the relationships among these regulatory entities; the social and professional forces that gave rise to them; the processes by which they operate; and how they influence marital and family therapy on a daily basis. The book aims to clarify contemporary standards for marital and family therapy practice and the mechanisms by which those standards are developed, assessed, and enforced.
