The first text on Medical Family Therapy (MedFT), entitled "Medical Family Therapy: A Biopsychosocial Approach to Families with Health Problems," was published in 1992. Its authors, Susan McDaniel, Jeri Hepworth, and Bill Doherty, shared a vision that it would be adopted by individuals from all different healthcare disciplines who practiced from a biopsychosocial (Engel, 1977, 1980) and family systems (von Bertalanffy, 1968) approach. Since then, a crescendo of literature has been introduced advocating for more systemic and family-centered approaches to healthcare practice. Their dream was achieved.
