This article considers the fit between family therapy and complementary alternative medicine (CAM).
Descriptions of and research results on a variety of CAM practices are provided, as are implications for practice, education, research, and policy.
It is concluded that the two fields mesh easily and that clients might be better served if their therapists had knowledge of CAM.
At the same time, therapists are cautioned regarding the need for both further study and appropriate regulation of alternative practices.
