Agency Consultation and Staff Development

The faculty of the Family Institute of Westchester is available to provide training for agencies and agency staff at our facility or on site for the agency.

Trainings are designed to meet the needs of the program, presenting family systems theory and the FIW multi-contextual model. Faculty members have also been invited presenters and keynote speakers at conferences throughout the United States.

Workshops

Trainings have been done in the form of individual workshops on topics ranging from the family as a system, the family life cycle, and understanding genograms; to special issues from a family systems perspective, such as substance abuse, illness and death, eating disorders, parenting, divorce and remarriage, family resilience, affairs, and most recently, families and the economy.

Workshop series have also been presented to help agencies shift treatment focus to family-centered practice, or just to help strengthen staff skills in thinking systemically in their work with families.

Case Consultation

Case consultations are used to assist staff in applying a family systems approach, expanding treatment options for difficult cases. These consultations may, or may not, be presented in conjunction with a workshop series.
