Clinical Conference: Chronic Anxiety and Family Functioning
June 7 at 9:30 am – 3:30 pm EDT| $95
Speaker: Laura R. Brooks, LCSW-C
This conference will focus on the repetitive patterns in the nuclear family that emerge from and absorb chronic anxiety. The intensity of these patterns reflects the level of differentiation of the individual and system. As individuals are able to regulate their own reactivity, their part in the patterns becomes clearer. Two clinical interviews will elucidate the challenges to focusing less on the other and the benefits of thinking for self. While this effort contributes to more satisfying and productive family relationships, it also paves the way towards higher levels of functional differentiation.
