3 ethics CEs


Co-hosted by MAMFT and NEAFAST

Ethical Dilemmas in Family Therapy: Multiple Relationships within the Family System is a 3 CE conference that discusses processes for handling multiple relationships with family members in family therapy, such as when and how to (or not to) provide solo and dyadic sessions, adding in or subtracting family members into the system, and knowing when we are getting pulled into the family system ourselves.  


  1. Name three reasons multiple relationships within the family can be problematic.
  2. Explain three common dilemmas found while doing in-home therapy.
  3. Define and practice three Structural Family Therapy interventions which will help to mitigate the above ethical dilemmas.
