The Family Life Cycle in Action is a 3-hour workshop which explores the relationship between important events in a family’s life (including birth, adolescence, launching, coupling, retirement, chronic disease, addiction, death) and the family members’ “mental health.” Participants will actively create the profiles of two families and role-play to examine the stressors that accompany major family transitions and the potential impact on the families’ mental health. Participants will be able to see the relationship between life events and the presenting problem in the therapy room by gaining a systemic view of the families as they adjust to change. Possible interventions will be explored.
