Clinical Conference: Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Families Under Pressure
November 2 at 9:30 am – 3:30 pm EST| $95
Speaker: Daniel V. Papero, PhD, LCSW-C, LICSW
Family systems periodically face challenges and stresses linked to the generational cycle itself. One of the most frequently described challenges is that of managing the care of an older family member. The pressures linked to these situations intensifies the pull on family members towards togetherness while also triggering the pull to be free of the tension and constraints of the family dilemma. How families handle the emotional reactiveness and interpersonal tensions among family members influences the competency of caregiving and the overall well-being of family members.
A maximum of 5 CEU/CEs are available.
