The Evolution of Couple and Family Therapy in Europe: complex but not still diverse enough presented by Salvatore D’Amore, PhD (University of Liège, Belgium)

European couple and family therapy has achieved an extraordinary level of development through the creation of multiple practices, training institutes, scientific journals and supervision centers. Aside from the traditional topics, it strikes me that European couple and family therapy develops complexity through neurobiology, evidence based family and couple therapy; and through the development of narrativist and constructivist approaches. But, the European take on the complexity approach does have certain limitations partly due to, not thoroughly enough, considering the concept of diversity.
