3:00 PM EST – 5:00 PM EST

Overview:

Working with dysfunctional couples and/or family systems is very challenging to many
helping professionals due in part to generational patterns that have gone unnoticed. In
addition, developing healthy family systems requires identifying and managing the many
obstacles to intimacy as well as identifying poor patterns of communication.

This presentation addresses these issues by exploring functional and dysfunctional
communication styles and learning how to teach couples and families healthier ways to
communicate as well as how to recognize and overcome obstacles to intimacy.

Participants will also learn the importance of developing treatment plans that address the whole family system as well as utilizing a Bio-Psycho-Social-Spiritual foundation for creating healthier family systems.

Objectives:

  • Identify at least ten (10) “Red Flags” that block intimacy and healing in couples and
    families and develop effective treatment interventions for positive treatment
    outcomes.
  • Teach their clients eight (8) simple rules for talking to others as well as six (6) simple
    rules for listening to others in order to create a healthier family system.

Power presentation will be posted soon.
