Assessing Family Relationships
Initial counseling sessions provide an opportunity to learn about the client’s needs and discover a plan for the counseling relationship. The process of obtaining information and joining your new client can be connecting and informative for client and counselor.
This workshop will train you in the use of an interactive counseling tool, The Family Life Space Drawing. The training will provide you with a unique way to join clients and engage them while learning about current relationship dynamics and environmental factors in an interactive visual way. Not only will you be able to discover the present factors related to personal relationships, social stress, and community factors, you and the clients have an opportunity to discover information that is underlying the current relationship situation that includes family history!
The tool is useful for all counseling relationships but is particularly useful when working with more than one person as in the case of couples and families.
Ron and Theresa have been using this process and teaching about it for over 30 years. Ron has been an innovator and developer of the procedure and Theresa is writing a book on how to use the process. We have written a manual describing the process and it is available on amazon June 2019 – Assessing Family Relationships: Family Life Space Drawing Manual
