Workshop Description: This workshop is an introduction to the field of Medical Family Therapy (MedFT). The content will focus on theories, concepts, and constructs related to working with couples and families facing medical illness and disability. We will cover foundational theories and history beginning with the biopsychosocial and then biopsychosocial spiritual models and McDaniel, Hepworth, and Doherty's early work. Then we will explore Rolland's (1994, 2018) expansion on this work and concepts to better understand how illness impacts families at different life stages, how typology of illness impacts families, and the role that diverse family and cultural illness beliefs influence understanding and treatment.

Workshop Objectives:

1. Develop a basic understanding of the theoretical underpinnings of Medical Family Therapy (MedFT)

2. Be able to identify how illness phases & typology impact families.

3. Develop an understanding and appreciation for the diversity of cultural beliefs as they relate to health and illness
