How to Engage the Extended Family in Trauma Treatment (Family Trauma Institute)

It takes a village to raise a child (an old African proverb). This means that a child needs both the immediate and extended family to overcome adverse traumatic experiences to heal long term.

Unfortunately, traditional trauma treatment often only includes the individual child. And if you do mobilize, the extended family, you are often unsure what their role is or how to actively incorporate them into trauma treatment.

In the free webinar, join Dr. Scott Sells to learn:

  • The top reasons why we do not actively engage the extended family in trauma treatment.
  • The FST (Family Systems Trauma) Diagnostic Village Handout to quickly locate your family's extended family or village and determine who is supportive and non-supportive.
  • How the FST Diagnostic Village Handout will lower your client’s resistance to contacting and engaging their extended family.
