Implementation of Brief Strategic Family Therapy
April 27 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am PDTFree
This brief introduction will describe the BSFT® model as a systemic therapy designed to restructure maladaptive family interactions underlying the problems of delinquent, drug using youth. The presentation will cover the theoretical foundation for the BSFT® model as well as the process of the intervention to orchestrate deep structural change in family functioning. A unique dimension: BSFT® specialized engagement, a series of techniques to ensure whole families are invited and attend each family session will also be covered. Recognizing the inherent resistance to change in all systems, the BSFT® model does not require motivation for families to attend. Instead, it uses therapeutic engagement strategies to ensure their attendance and retention in family therapy.
