For Clinicians

Clients requiring intensive treatment for complex psychological issues, including addiction and mood, eating and trauma-based disorders, developed in family systems wounded by legacies of loss from which the members have never fully recovered. Communication patterns among members of such families are fraught with distortions, assumptions, accusations and misdirection. This two-hour workshop will uncover the nature of family system woundedness using the Stress-Induced Impaired Coping model developed by the presenter. Strategies to engage members in the clinical conversation and promote more effective communication among them when outside the office will be presented.

Participants will be able to:

  • Describe the common environmental characteristics of wounded family systems

  • Use experiential exercises to deepen family treatment

Free. 2 CE for $25
