Creating and Maintaining an Effective Therapeutic System
It has been said that no therapeutic endeavor can be successful without the establishment and safeguarding of a viable therapeutic relationship between therapist and client. In family therapy, the client is an entire family system, so the challenge for therapists is to be able to create and maintain a therapeutic relationship with a set of individuals who have a history of interacting rules and roles and who, most often, are at odds with each other.
This workshop teaches all the elements and strategies needed to develop and maintain through therapy an effective therapeutic system as it is done in BSFT.
We will be focusing on:
- MAINTENANCE strategies
- TRACKING strategies
- MIMESIS strategies
- When to Join
- Targeted Joining
- Joining while Challenging the family system
This interactive workshop will include a PowerPoint presentation, class exercises, role play, analysis of videotaped family sessions, and Q’s and A’s.
