If a troubled family contains the resources to solve its own problems, then why not bring such families together, to share their experiences and support each other?

This is the approach of the Marlborough Family Service, the institution at the forefront of development for child-protection cases, school-based interventions and family therapy for ethnic-minority communities for over twenty years. In this book three long-standing staff members describe for the first time their innovative work with a range of family problems, from marital violence and child abuse to educational problems and eating disorders.
