ONE-DAY WORKSHOP (20 October 2018)
The William Street Family Therapy Centre is proud to offer this one-day Workshop by a world-famous Master Family Therapist & Master Teacher:
In this workshop, Maurizio Andolfi will demonstrate how to use a multigenerational-systemic approach in treating severe eating disorders in adolescents. Instead of focusing on food issues and correcting wrong eating habits, Andolfi’s approach aims to understand the body language of frail adolescents. They generally present with a distorted self-image, low self-esteem and fear of the outside world. At the same time, their dysfunctional and self-destructive behaviour can be seen as a form of extreme adolescent rebelliousness and an exasperated search for love and care.
Family therapy is the best treatment modality to restore positive connections and harmony within distressed families and to help problematic adolescents grow without fear of emotional refusal inside and outside the home and of peer group exclusion. Inviting the family of origin allows us to work on long term traumas and losses, and inviting adolescent friends in special session increases peer support. This is a workshop not to be missed!!
