"In this informative video designed for therapists and parents alike, see how Family-Based Therapy (FBT) actively engages parents in effective treatment of anorexia. Developed by Dr. Daniel LeGrange in the 1980s, FBT (aka The Maudsley Approach) is a hands-on family model that aims to gradually restore the client's weight, eating and fitness behaviors, and self-regulation. Featuring multiple interviews with parents whose families have successfully completed treatment, this video covers issues particular to the parent's experience of this debilitating disorder. You'll follow several families as they go through the three phases of FBT, with interviews, narrative, and clinical commentary interspersed throughout. You'll learn about the biological reality and consequences of anorexia, the internal dialogue young clients often experience, and the anxiety parents feel as they support their often-resistant children through "refeeding" and other interventions. You will also witness how FBT helps families deepen their bond as they collectively work toward healing their adolescent's relationship with food. Intended for parents of adolescents diagnosed with anorexia, as well as students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.

"The systems approach to family therapy has taken root over the past half-century as a prominent and trusted assessment framework. Even as other methods have entered the field, the systems perspective--including the genogram--remains a reliable way of understanding the complex relationships and rich histories that characterize a family. While we now largely accept that family dynamics can influence individual members' healing capacities, we can still feel mystified by how to actually begin a course of systems treatment. In this excellent new video resource, family systems expert Monica McGoldrick offers practical tools to help you move forward with adolescents and their families. Over five clinical sessions with the Zapata family, she demonstrates how to integrate specific techniques into treatment focused on helping family clients manage not just their presenting issues, but also the systems-oriented background concerns that underlie them. This video is an essential tool for clinicians who want useful strategies for systems therapy, adolescent therapy and risk assessment, or family-based alliance building." - Supplied by publisher.
"In this training video, Virginia Satir presents her pioneering views on the essential ingredients of successful therapy. Satir presents her four stages of therapy, and demonstrates the principles via numerous role-plays, where you'll get a sense of her warmth, facility in making perceptive statements that resonate with clients, and ability to use touch to deepen a client's sense of safety. The therapist's role, she advises, is to create the safest environment for a client to move from their internalized "status quo" into the vulnerable unknown, a requirement for anyone wanting to let go of old conditioning and experience a new way of being. You will learn about client ambivalence, intellectualization, and anxiety's role in motivation; the need for a client to trust their therapist; experiential ways of understanding and working with client resistance; and the nature of trust, choice, and a client's sense of chaotic "limbo" that can arise during the therapeutic process. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.

"Alliances, rifts, estrangement--if you're part of a family, chances are you're all too familiar with these complicated relationships. As therapists, our clients' concerns can almost always be traced back to the family. How are these dynamics created? What sustains them, even as generations shift and members come and go? Perhaps most important, how do we begin to change them into something more loving and supportive? Family therapists have worked for decades to answer these questions--and this rich new streaming video, hosted by one of the field's premier experts, offers a critical take on one of family life's most common aspects. In this video, Monica McGoldrick applies her extensive knowledge of systems therapy to explain family triangles, and offers straightforward techniques you can use to help clients heal them. Family genograms, the visual tool innovated on by McGoldrick herself, reveal here how 30-year-old Eliza, the middle of three siblings, leverages emerging insights about her own family triangles in order to ease her new boyfriend's entrance into the group. As she does this, you'll see how her entire family reorients from top to bottom, making space for improved relationships and fresh possibilities. You'll be enamored as McGoldrick reveals the empowering potential of triangle mapping for clients, and the positive impact this can make intergenerationally. This is a resource you'll be glad you added to your virtual shelf. By watching this video, you will: Understand the definition of triangles, its distinction from triads, and its impact on family dynamics. Discover several potent strategies for "detriangling" these dynamics. Learn how to support client goals using triangle mapping interventions." - Supplied by publisher.
