Erickson recognized the vital importance of changing the client's relationships within their social contexts. Frequently, he included the client's family, friends and others to make therapy briefer with more permanent positive outcomes. Participants will learn ways to better understand the influence of social contexts, engage the social network and influence relationships to promote change. Case analogies will be given and videotape examples from actual session demonstrate the Strategic Family Therapy approach.
