FAMILY ASSESSMENT

A person and a child sitting on a chair  Description automatically generated

Assessment is as essential to family therapy as it is to individual therapy. Although families often present with one person identified as the “problem,” the assessment process will help you better understand family roles and determine whether the identified problem client is in fact the root of the family’s issues.

 

To prepare:

· Review this week’s Learning Resources and reflect on the insights they provide on family assessment. Be sure to review the resource on psychotherapy genograms.

· Download the Comprehensive Psychiatric Evaluation Note Template and review the requirements of the documentation. There is also an exemplar provided with detailed guidance and examples.

· View the  Mother and Daughter: A Cultural Tale video in the Learning Resources and consider how you might assess the family in the case study.
