Quinn offers us an innovative and highly effective treatment approach for juvenile offenders and other serious youth behavioral difficulties. What is most unique about Quinn's Family Solutions Program is its multiple family group format, which he clearly demonstrates through many case examples and solid research, provides families with a strong sense of community, multiple strengths and resources to draw from for support, and can produce rapid changes on individual, family system, and larger systems levels. This book is a timely and valuable contribution to the family therapy literature.."-Matthew D.
