Family Systems

The series covers current issues in family system assessments and family level interventions, including parent-child and inter-generational treatments, as well as important concepts such as family resilience and complex adaptations to trauma, family engagement, family centered care, and shared decision-making in the treatment processes. Experts discuss research focused on adapting trauma EBPs for family trauma contexts (i.e. domestic violence, intrafamilial trauma, intergenerational trauma, etc.) and strategies to work with multilingual and partially-acculturated families. Lastly the series offers a discussion on policy issues and implications for delivering trauma care to families.
