Healing from Family Estrangement *ZOOM*(3CEs)

Helping patients heal from the wounds that caused estrangement with family of origin.

About this event

Workshop Summary

Family can be a source of support, encouragement, and love for many people. However, there is a population of people who report never having this experience with their family members. Moreover, they report having the opposite experience. That is, family has been the source of pain, discouragement, and violence.

Family estrangement is more common than you think. Making the decision to separate from family is a difficult one with many layers. This workshop will offer insight into the social and cultural implications of family estrangement and discuss research related to the topic. It will also present therapeutic suggestions that work toward healing and missteps that create harm in patients. Lastly, we will review case studies and real-life examples of the impact of estrangement.

This workshop meets the MULTICULTURAL requirement for licensure.
