Assistant professor publishes first book

D. Scott Sibley, NIU human development and family sciences assistant professor, has co-authored “Contextual Therapy for Family Health: Clinical Applications.” According to publisher Routledge: “This book provides readers with a compelling case for the inclusion of contextual therapy in comprehensive healthcare settings by presenting its applications to individual and family health across the lifespan.”

The book provides an overview of contextual therapy as well as provides recommendations for using contextual therapy in diverse settings. “Case studies illustrate how concepts such as justice, loyalty and balanced giving and receiving influence families’ adjustment to chronic illness and mental health disorders,” according the publisher’s description.

The book is intended to empower clinicians to expand their “assessment methods, intervention techniques, and supervision experiences.”
