The Family Therapy Workbook provides psychoeducation across a range of diverse topics to help all families foster healthy communication, a deeper understanding of one another, and a stronger and more loving connection. With therapists and clients in mind, Mates-Youngman has developed guided conversations, strategies, and homework assignments to help families achieve healthy, long-term goals.
The goal is not to eliminate challenges that arise among family members but to grow and learn from those challenges as a strong and connected family unit. This useful and practical guide will provide you with the tools needed to address a variety of issues that families may present with, such as alcohol abuse, adoption and fostering, eating disorders, and gender and sexuality.
