The wide array of issues covered includes crisis and trauma marital conflict separation, divorce and blended families individual psychopathology substance abuse and addictions gender, culture, economic class and race sexual identity Calling for an integrated approach of "responsible eclecticism," they conclude with a vision for Christian family therapy.
