ESFT Stage I: Constructing a Therapeutic System

September 12 @ 1:15 pm - 4:30 pm

Several scaling devices are described for use by the clinician to assess the strength of the therapeutic alliance with caregivers and youth. Educational Objectives: 1) describe the characteristicsof an ESFT therapeutic…

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). Educational Objectives: 1) describe at least two of the ESFT assessment tools; 2) recognize a relational…

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…

ESFT Stage IV: Solidifying Change, Termination, and Discharge Planning

December 14 @ 9:00 am - 12:15 pm
$90

Therapists need to be as clinically thorough in ending treatment as they are in beginning treatment. This workshop begins with an exploration of cultural/emotional relational endings for both families and therapists. Emphasis is placed on how clinicians need to prepare for discharge from the beginning of treatment and the suggested language to be used during each of the first three stages of Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy. Five steps of termination are then clarified: therapist review, family therapy review, ending of…
