FAMILY ENRICHMENT THERAPY AND FAMILY REUNIONS

In Family Enrichment Therapy, several family members take part.  Both parents are involved, together with one of the children whose problems brought the family to treatment in the first place.  At times they are joined by the other children in the family, or even grandparents.

The aim of Family Enrichment Therapy is to alleviate the problems that led to the disorder in the identified member, rather than to achieve some ideal state of a perfect family.  Its principal use is in the treatment of childhood and adolescent difficulties which affect the other members of the family.  Family Reunions are devised to allow members of a family or other social group who have been in conflict, to reunite with each other with peace and love.

We also offer Family of Origin exploration through photographic analysis and action methods, and family reunions, in two or more intensive sessions lasting several hours each, to renew strained connections.
