Hearn, Jeff and Lawrence, Marilyn (1981) Family Sculpting: I. Some doubts and some possibilities. Journal of Family Therapy, 3 (3). pp. 341-352. ISSN 0163-4445

Family sculpting is reviewed within the context of general doubts that confront family therapy, in particular the need for a certain act of faith in therapy, and the search for some sort of underlying theory. Family sculpting is most often used in reference to the psychoanalytic tradition of family therapy, but here the case is made for more serious attention to structural approaches. The potential of family sculpting is further explored in a number of other respects: its concreteness, its portrayal of ambiguity and its use with students, workers and other groups.
