Knowledge of Interaction Focused Therapy (IFT) equips the therapist with skill in immediately understanding problematic behavior. Derived from the Communication Theory of Don Jackson, Gregory Bateson and colleagues, and effective with the widest range of problems, basic premises of this evidence-based approach will be taught, with emphasis on specific strategies for promoting change.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe four basic premises of Interactional Theory for making sense of individual behavior as part of patterns of relationship dynamics.
  2. Demonstrate at least 4 specific strategies for evoking constructive change in symptom evoking interpersonal contexts.
