About the Author

Mark A. Yarhouse is the Hughes Endowed Chair and professor of psychology at Regent University where he directs the Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity and is a core faculty member in the doctoral program in clinical psychology. A licensed clinical psychologist, he practices privately in the Virginia Beach area. He is the author of many works, including Understanding Gender Dysphoria. James N. Sells is professor of counseling and director of the PhD program in counselor education and supervision at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is also a licensed psychologist.


In Family Therapies, Yarhouse and Sells provide an important resource for Christian scholars and therapists. The first two sections provide a thoughtful foundation and Christian critique of existing therapy models, reminiscent of what Stanton L. Jones and Richard E. Butman accomplished in their classic book, Modern Psychotherapies, but with a focus on models of family therapy. The third section, which could have been a book on its own, looks at contemporary issues in relation to a Christian perspective on family therapy. The final section casts a vision for an integrative model of family therapy. This is a significant book that will help shape the training and practice of Christian therapists.

--Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D., ABPP, professor of psychology, George Fox University, an`d coauthor of Integrative Psychotherapy
