EFTA Book Series

European Family Therapy Association Series

This series offers contributions from the European Family Therapy Association’s community of senior authors and experienced editors. It brings together state-of-the-art contributions on crucial issues in family therapy in Europe with a focus on systemic family therapy. The topics alternate between those that make research findings accessible and of immediate value to practitioners and those that cover clinical areas. This series is essential reading for family therapists, counselors, and social workers across the globe.

We are working on a number of possibilities for future volumes and want to invite EFTA members to send us your ideas either for an edited volume or a single author book. We will then discuss with you how the proposal could form a part of the EFTA series, and are able to send detailed information about how to create a proposal for the publishers. Springer have recently offered some guidance on the kinds of books that they are keen to publish, including the following:
 “Springer is interested primarily in original work that reflects the most up-to-date advances. Springer Nature advances discovery by publishing robust and insightful research, supporting the development of new areas of knowledge and making ideas and information accessible around the world.
An important question is whether or not the book content will appeal to Springer’s primary target market: that is, will Springer readers within the institutional libraries that purchase our annual eBook Collection – researchers, professors, graduate students – find this a valuable addition to the series as well as the overall Springer BehSCi eBook package?”

Please send your general hopes and thoughts about the EFTA Book Series to the Series Editors:  Maria Borcsa and Peter Stratton
