Coming Home Againis a compelling case study a single family that underwent family-of-origin therapy presented by one of the earliest and best-known pioneers in the field. This book is unique in its presentation of the two dimensions of the therapeutic experience-that of the therapist and that of the clients. Framo and Levine serve as the therapy team, while Weber and his family are the clients in these two specialized, intense, brief intervention sessions that occurred one year apart. The transcripts of the sessions are supported by commentary from both therapists as well as insights from Weber-the client-who brings to bear clinical knowledge and knowledge of himself and his family. The underlying story-the story of the therapists-is almost as compelling as the family's story. It is a candid, honest look at family-of-origin therapy from those who partook in the sessions.
