Systemic-Motivational Family Therapy for Substance Use Disorders
This workshop is designed to introduce participants to one of the most comprehensive family-based treatment approaches for substance abuse disorders (SUDs)—the systemic-motivational family treatment model (SMFT) developed by Peter Steinglass and his colleagues at Ackerman’s Center for Substance Use Disorders and the Family. This model focuses on how family reorganization around alcohol and /or drug use alters family behavior and why using a combination of interactional and motivational interviewing techniques in working with the whole family is critical to treatment success not only during the assessment and detoxification phases of treatment, but also during rehabilitation/recovery.
