Workshop 29 (ticket)
Strategies for Implementation of Family Assessment and Interventions in Outpatient Psychiatric Practice

Family interventions focus on the utilization of inherent strengths in families to promote resiliency and encourage adaptability. Presenters review the principles of family assessment in different clinical scenarios and identify ways the family system contributes to or exacerbates individual psychopathology. This includes identifying specific aspects of family structure and functioning that are responsive to family-based interventions. Specific family interventions, such as joining, reframing, family rituals, prescribing symptoms, circular questioning, and reflective listening are presented in different age groups. Case vignettes and videotaped family sessions facilitate interactive discussion, role-play, and problem solving.
