This interactive workshop is designed for Trainer-Mentors who oversee ESFT implementation in intensive, in-home programs.   The didactic component of this training focuses on recent refinements in conceptualization of the Negative Interactional Cycle (NIC), which includes six steps.  Also described is the case conceptualization narrative and how it informs each of these six steps of the NIC. The revised fidelity measure (Brief Doc-F), which evaluates the quality of the NIC and case conceptualization, is introduced and reviewed.  Opportunities are presented for practicing use of these three integrated forms in supervision.

Another major focus of this interactive workshop is the use of video in clinical supervision.  Its advantages are described and demonstrated through reviews of videotaped supervision sessions.  Strategies for overcoming challenges and barriers to the use of videotaping are addressed.

As a result of participating in these training activities, participants will:

  1. Describe the six steps of the Negative interactional Cycle
  2. Explain expectations for the Case Conceptualization narrative
  3. Show how the questions on the Case Conceptualization narrative link to the NIC and the Relational Treatment Plan
  4. Describe how to complete the revised Brief Doc-F
  5. Describe the advantages of using videotaping in family therapy sessions and in supervision
  6. Explain strategies for addressing barriers to videotaping
