Treatment planning in ESFT is more than pro forma paperwork separated from the actual on-the-ground treatment. It is, in fact, an intervention that can be a major determinant of treatment outcomes. If done well, the treatment planning process shifts the viewing of problems and their solutions to a more relational perspective, setting the stage for highly focused, meaningful, productive work with motivated family members. This course describes procedures for making this happen. Basic principles related to relational treatment planning are described.
This course is appropriate for beginner through advanced level practitioners.
