Reaching Families Through In-Home Therapy

When:  Feb 26, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  AAMFT South Carolina
Join us for this 2-hour webinar led by SCAMFT Chair Elizabeth Ogorek. 

In-home therapy is a natural setting for marriage and family therapists hoping to work with children and families. This presentation will provide an inside look at the implementation of family therapy in the in-home setting through the lens of the approach taken by the Thornwell Building Families Program. The conversation will address the unique nature of the therapeutic relationship developed through in-home work as well as how to transition in-person activities to a telehealth setting.

Based on the content of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand challenges that are unique to in-home work.
  • Understand the unique nature of the therapeutic relationship developed with clients when working in their homes.
  • Gain awareness of ways that inter-agency collaboration will benefit clients and the practitioners themselves.
