Therapists working in intensive, in-home, family-based services see many families who are stuck in negative, self-defeating interactional patterns that create a toxic relational environment for their children and themselves. These negative patterns result in caregivers struggling to find empathy and compassion for their children and struggling to maintain a leadership role in the family. Therapists relying strictly on methods directed at changing cognitions or behavior often fail with multi-stressed families. This workshop describes how to use a method that is the cornerstone of EcoSystemic approaches to family therapy – enactments. This approach involves therapists assuming a facilitative role, seizing on opportunities in sessions to help family members experience themselves in more functional interactions with one another.
As a result of participating in this workshop, therapists will be able to:
- Describe the role of supportive counseling, psychoeducation, coaching, and enactment in family therapy
- Describe the nature of an enactment and the reasons this approach is effective in shifting negative family patterns
- Recognize when to use an enactment in sessions and how to set it up to be effective
