- Describe family systems including family dynamics, patterns and cycles of interaction among members
- Examine common family assessment tools and interpret the results
- Evaluate effective family interventions and how to incorporate these interventions into practice.
Many clinicians who work very effectively with their individual clients struggle when working with families. They’re unsure how to assess the dynamics and develop an action plan. In this 5 hour course, key foundational concepts in family systems including family dynamics and patterns will be reviewed and discussed. We will examine 2 – 3 family assessment tools and participants will have an opportunity to practice administering, scoring and interpreting the results of these tools. Lastly, participants will learn effective family interventions that provide essential information on family patterns, cycles and dynamics. We will discuss how to incorporate these interventions into practice. A blend of lecture and hands-on practice of both family assessments and interventions will be utilized.
