ESFT Stage II: Creating a Meaningful Focus: From Assessment to Reframing
September 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm$90
ESFT assessment methods invite family members to participate in new conversations that humanize, contextualize and identify potential directions for change in non-adaptive family patterns. The use of family assessment tools such as genograms, critical event time-lines, eco-maps, structural maps, and core negative interaction patterns (CNIP) will be demonstrated. Focus is given to how the clinician develops a relational and contextual reframe of the problem(s).
1) describe at least two of the ESFT assessment tools;
2) recognize a relational reframe of the identified patient’s symptomatic behavior;
3) describe how to use assessment methods to strengthen the therapeutic alliance.
