Expired Family Systems Work with Adolescents: Specific Areas of Focus

In this workshop we will consider systemic interventions for particular problem areas that often arise in family work with adolescents. Among the topics to be covered will be: family therapy with adolescents and high conflict couples (including divorced or divorcing couples), family therapy with high risk adolescents (focusing particularly on self-harm and substance abuse), family therapy focusing on conflict around screens and social media.

This workshop is a follow-up to the workshop, Introduction to Family Therapy with Adolescents, but attendance in the previous workshop is not a prerequisite.

Learning Objectives:

  • To learn specific interventions to use in family therapy when working with the following:
    • adolescents and high conflict couples
    • high risk adolescents
    • conflict around screens and social media
