Affect in Family Therapy 2023-2024

Instructor: Andrew Fussner, MSW

8:30am to 1:00pm

In this three-module series, Mr. Fussner explores the often-hidden role of emotions in the family system.  The overarching goal of these modules is to help trainees see beyond behavior and look at the emotional and psychological context where the meaning of interactions is derived.  Through the case presentations and videotape analysis, trainees are given the opportunity to practice attuning to and interpreting the meaning of family member interactions.
