Workshop Description:

This workshop will introduce the core concepts behind family systems therapy and explore the
perspective of understanding symptoms in children and young persons as a systemic/dynamic process.  Participants will learn how to intervene to facilitate change with the use of effective language and strategies.  The workshop will also highlight the person of the therapist and how the therapist/practitioner brings their own story into the context of family therapy.
