Eleven women from multiproblem families in Israel were asked to describe a treatment experience that they perceived as having been helpful. The replies were analyzed using narrative research techniques and grouped into conceptual categories with illustrative quotations from the interviews. Conclusions are offered regarding client preferences in the areas of technique and outcome of interventions. This study underscores the principle that, as consumers of treatment clients should be asked what kind of services they wish to receive.
