ESFT Stage III: Creating Key Growth Promoting Experiences: Content and Process Interventions
September 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm$90
Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy is an empirically-based treatment model. Within this stage of treatment there are specific interventions that produce incremental change in four important areas of family functioning; co-caregiver-alliance; attachment; executive functioning and self-regulation. This workshop describes and demonstrates structural interventions such as: boundary making, punctuating behavioral complementarity; eliciting strengths, unbalancing power alignments, and raising intensity. Special emphasis is given to the use of enactment as an intervention. Enactments are demonstrated that:1)test hypotheses about current family structure and strength of attachment and, 2) promote growth in these family interactions.
1) Describe at least two ESFT interventions;
2) Describe the four phases of an enactment;
3) Recognize enactments that promote executive functioning or attachment.
