Therapists new to a family systems approach to treatment often encounter difficulty adopting and maintaining a systemic or relational perspective concerning problems and their solutions. A nonrelational or acontextual orientation compromises therapists’ ability to identify problematic family interactional patterns. It also interferes with using enactments, a core treatment method in ESFT. This interactive discussion-oriented training uses supervision videotapes and case examples to identify supervisory strategies for helping supervisees develop a more relational orientation to working with families.


  1. Identify barriers supervisors face in helping therapists maintain a relational or systemic perspective
  2. Identify strategies for addressing these barriers and helping therapists see patterns and context
