“Everyone must read this book. It has already revolutionized family therapy. ”

Contemporary Psychology

“I adopted THE INVISIBLE WEB last semester for my Women's Studies course on psychology of women, and found it to be a perfect teaching text. It offers the best combination of family systems thinking and feminist issues that I have seen, and, perhaps most important, my students loved it! The case studies are immediately engaging and the issues they bring to life help to initiate productive class discussion. I intend to use it again and recommend it highly to other Women's Studies professors.”

—Naomi Rosenthal, Ph.D., SUNY at Old Westbury

“Like a country quilt, THE INVISIBLE WEB pulls together the living thought and practice of four leading women in the family therapy field, as they apply a feminist lens to their own treatment methods. This is not only a major event, but a unique one...”

—Lynn Hoffman, M.S.W.

“INVISIBLE WEB, by the leading foremothers in the field of family therapy, is on my most highly recommended short list of readings in my family and couples therapy courses. Sparkling with clinical insights and case illustrations on gender dilemmas in relationships, it is always a favorite of students, men and women alike.”

—Froma Walsh, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Service Administration and Department of Psychiatry, The University of Chicago & Co-Director, Chicago Center for Family Health
