The family therapy field is characterized by a plethora of theories about the nature and relative effectiveness of different techniques and by a dearth of research testing these clinical theories. A considerable amount of research has been devoted to assessing the outcome of family therapy (Gurman and Kniskern, 1978; Wells, Dilkes and Trivelli, 1972; Wells and Dezen, 1978), but little has been devoted to systematically describing and evaluating the process of family therapy or attempting to relate process to outcome.
