Quick Overview

This journal explores four different themes in relation to families. The first grapples with the complexity of engaging with family histories across generations when dispossession and injustice is a part of these histories. The second consists of moving and thoughtful accounts by counsellors about how legacies from their families of origin in relation to mental health issues have led to creative developments in their own work. The third sheds new light on the experience of refugee families and poses many questions in relation to how we as health professionals can respond to those who have to flee their countries and leave their homes and family members behind them. And the final theme conveys some of the delights, struggles and learnings involved in creating gay and lesbian, anti-nuclear families. In the process, these stories offer new perspectives on relationships and the making of family that have widespread implications. This collection of papers will be of relevance to anyone working with families - in all their diversity.
