Core Skills In Family Therapy Practice (Singapore)
Effective family intervention can only occur when the clinician has conducted a thorough assessment. This involves using genograms in engagement and applying a structured assessment format involving exploring and understanding family patterns of functioning. This one day workshop will provide participants with a solid introduction in how to conduct an interview using genograms in assessment. It will also cover how to develop a sound case formulation plan and how to apply family focused interventions keeping in mind the complexity of a family’s context, transgenerational history, patterns of interaction and events.
Participants will learn how to explore family patterns of both contributing and maintaining factors influencing the development and maintenance of problem behaviours and relationships. There will be opportunities to practice skills in using genograms in assessment, develop systemic hypotheses and case formulation to guide interventions. There will also be opportunities to review video examples of family assessments and treatment planning as well as opportunity to practice and use various assessment tools throughout the day.
