A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away (the U.S. from the late sixties 
through early eighties), a number of mental health professionals including 
Speck, Attneave, Pattison, Curtis, and Garrison extended the boundaries of 
family therapy to work with personal networks - a practice that came to be 
known as "network therapy." In 1980, I reviewed the emerging field in 
Connections.



When Ross Speck described his pioneering practice to Erving Goffman, Goffman 
directed him to Elizabeth Botts' book, which led Speck to adopt the term and 
concept of network. The first network therapists used network ideas from 
anthropology, particularly the works of Barnes, Mitchell, and Boissevain. 
Jodie Kliman and I, building on emerging structural theory in network 
analysis, and particularly the research of Hammer, Cohen, and Sokolofsky on 
the networks of chronic psychiatric patients, worked on a systematic 
integration of clinical strategies and social network analysis. In the U.S., 
the industrialization of mental health practice by the insurance industry 
mopped up whatever remnants of network therapy remained after the Reagan 
administration murdered community mental health. Network intervention 
survived in countries with remnants of the social welfare state, e.g. Canada 
(e.g., Lugtig), Holland (e.g., Baars), and Sweden (e.g., Forsberg, Klefbeck, 
Svedhem). Seikkula, a Finn, is generally acknowledged to be the current 
leading innovator in network therapy. Over time, unfortunately, network 
therapy has lost its emphasis on analysis of network structure. Postmodern 
ideas of social constructionism are the trend in family therapy, and 
Seikkula's (and my) work focuses on the distinction between monologic and 
dialogic discourse in therapeutic process.

The website www.netletter.org has current ideas and an archive of a 
newsletter that I used to edit through the 1980s and 90s, offering a 
historical perspective on the field.

In social work, Collins developed the idea of alliance with natural helpers 
in personal networks, and Lugtig led an ambitious project to build and 
strengthen network supports in inner-city neighborhoods to prevent child 
maltreatment.

The references below are extracted from a longer list that I can provide in 
response to requests.
