The language a therapist uses to conceptualize and treat a problem determines whether or not that problem can be resolved effectively.  This workshop introduces a new model, child-focused family therapy, which is a respectful and effective technique for treating severe problems of children.  This method includes a precisely worded opening question, a strategic dialogue with parents and children, Erickson’s principle of utilization, and the use of metaphor to open up solutions.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe how to interpret children’s problems as behavioral metaphors.
  2. List five strategies used by child-focused family therapy to resolve children’s problems.
