Ethical Dilemmas in Family Therapy: Multiple Relationships within the Family System with Kirsten Lind Seal, PhD, LMFT
co-hosted with the New England Association For Family and Systemic Therapy (NEAFAST)
Description: This webinar discusses processes for handling multiple relationships with family members in family therapy, such as when and how to (or not to) provide solo and dydic sessions, adding in or subtracting family members into the system, and knowing when we are getting pulled into the family system ourselves.
During this interactive workshop, participants will be invited to explore and discuss various ethical dilemmas that arise while working with family systems. Specific situations common to in-home family therapy, as well situations that arise during family work in clinics or in private practice will also be addressed. The use of Structural Family Therapy interventions and theoretical frameworks will be presented for discussion and a range of ethical issues will be considered.
- Name three reasons multiple relationships within the family can be problematic.
- Explain three common dilemmas found while doing in-home therapy.
Define and practice three Structural Family Therapy interventions which will help to mitigate the above ethical dilemmas.
