Family Therapy 101

ID: 5201

Family therapy is a revolutionary philosophy that embraces the idea that individual problems stem from our interactions with others. Family therapists look at the contexts, both micro and macro, in which problems arise. This is especially important for more vulnerable and/or more oppressed populations like children and adolescents, females, and people of color, who are more often diagnosed and medicated than whites. This interactive workshop offers clinicians, working in both agency and private practice settings, an alternative to traditional assessment via the DSM 5. The goal is to provide an understanding of how to assess problems systemically and how to intervene without focusing on pathology and medication. The workshops highlights key principles of family therapy and how problems can arise during transitional periods like birth, separation, illness and death, by looking at the family life cycle. We will use role play and watch and discuss a video of a real family session to examine the key principles of family therapy.
