Fort Myers Family Therapy Study Group for Professionals and Students, Monday October 19

A family therapy discussion group has been meeting bi-weekly in order that we may support each other’s continued deeper understanding of the systemic concepts underlying family and couples therapy.

Currently, we have been reading the evidence based manual “Brief Strategic Family Therapy for Drug Abusing Adolescents” referenced and linked in full below for download. We are going to begin discussion of chapter 4 at our next meeting on Monday October 19 from 5:30 to 7:00 at Hodges University in Fort Myers (map linked below) in room U252.

So far it has been a dynamic learning experience for us all. We welcome any interested professionals and any interested students who would like to participate in discussion centered on the application of specific family therapy concepts and techniques.
