MAURIZIO ANDOLFI: Professor in Residence @ William Street Family Therapy Centre
“GRANDPARENTS: A NEGLECTED RESOURCE IN WORKING WITH FAMILIES”: A multigenerational approach
ONE-DAY WORKSHOP (Sat 22 May 2021) (WST) 

The William Street Family Therapy Centre is proud to offer this one-day Workshop by a world-famous Master Family Therapist & Master Teacher:

Grandparents are an essential developmental resource for the wellbeing of the younger generation. They are primary attachment figures, providing love, care, wisdom and emotional stability to their grandchildren. They also have an important role in mediating conflict between the two generations: their children and their grandchildren.  When there is family adversity: hostile divorce; sudden loss; difficult single-parenting; risky or pathological adolescent behaviour; or family adjustments: adoption; migration; & other adjustments, grandparents can provide valuable guidance and emotional support.

Unfortunately, grandparental resources are greatly neglected in psychotherapy and counselling.  Interventions for an individual problem or symptom, generally focus on the symptom-bearer, ignoring the resources of other members of the family such as  parents, siblings and even more so, the older generation.  In this workshop, Maurizio Andolfi will outline the main elements of his multigenerational approach. He will demonstrate how and when to invite grandparents as consultants in therapy, when grandchildren are either in danger, or feeling lonely or abused.  Maurizio will present his multi-generational approach through clinical cases and video material. This is a workshop not to be missed!!
