New book by Pembroke Center Assistant Director Debbie Weinstein'93

The Pathological Family: Postwar America and the Rise of Family Therapy explores how family therapy developed against the intellectual and cultural landscape of postwar America. Now available from Cornell University Press.

While iconic popular images celebrated family life during the 1950s and 1960s, American families were simultaneously regarded as potentially menacing sources of social disruption. The history of family therapy makes the complicated power of the family at midcentury vividly apparent.
