Lighthouse Resources – Assessing Family Dynamics

One day in person workshop exploring structural family therapy for understanding family functioning, how behaviour problems develop in children, and how children’s emotional development can be facilitated

Lighthouse Resources presents Assessing Family Dynamics

Structural Family Therapy, developed in the 1970s, has become one of the most widely used models in the field. The theory is popular because it is simple, inclusive and practical. The basic structural concepts – hierarchy, boundaries and subsystems – are easily understood and applied. They take into account the individual, family and social context, and provide a clear organising framework for understanding and treating families.

This workshop provides a theoretical framework for understanding family functioning, how behaviour problems develop in children, and how children’s emotional development can be facilitated.

Participants have the opportunity to apply the theoretical concepts to assessment, formulating interventions, and other applications.

At the completion of the workshop, participants will have:

  • Knowledge of a theoretical framework for understanding family functioning based on Structural Family Therapy and Developmental Theory.
  • An understanding of the following concepts, and how they relate to functional and dysfunctional families: family system, subsystems, circular causality, sequence, homeostasis, hierarchy, boundaries, enmeshment, disengagement, coalition, triangulation, and detouring.
  • An awareness of how these theoretical concepts are applied in family assessment, therapy, and other applications.
