Enactment, an experiential method grounded in systems theory that brings interactional problems into the session for direct observation and change, is a component of all current evidence-based child and adolescent focused family therapies.  Enactment is the cornerstone of ESFT, where it is used to disrupt and shift negative interactional patterns to more functional ones.  This workshop introduces the method, describes what it is, and explains how and why it works. 

As a result of participating in this training, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe what enactments are and how they work.
  2. Identify when to use enactments in treatment.
  3. Explain the five stages of an enactment.
