Integrative Family Therapy With Couples DVD video
Part of the Relationships Video Series series
Assimilative family therapy equips the therapist with the knowledge of multiple theories and interventions and the ability to integrate them according to the needs of the client.
This approach uses Bowen family systemic theory as the home theory and integrates concepts and interventions from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, communications, and other systems therapies. Therapeutic work considers contextual variables that include the clients' age, ethnicity, culture, racial background, gender identification, religious beliefs, health status, marital and socioeconomic status, as well as personal traits such as resilience, attachment, and optimism.
Common factors play an important role in this model, and these are monitored consistently throughout treatment. In this video program, Dr. Patricia Pitta demonstrates assimilative family therapy with a couple attempting to improve their relationship by identifying and working through the personal, couple, and intergenerational issues affecting their behaviors and feelings.
