This workshop will center around a videotape of my work. Discussion will focus around what I see, how I choose the moment of intervention, and the kinds of intervention I choose. Concepts will be related to the theory underlying my practice as a family therapist.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To heighten, widen, and deepen the therapist's ability to intervene while clearly understanding the purpose of the intervention
  2. To describe the effect of the therapist's personal investment in the intervention
