Families coping with a diagnosis of terminal illness face challenges and changes that resonate across multiple generations. A family’s belief system regarding illness is a vital clue to providing good care. Effective family therapy involves deep engagement combined with strategic distance.  To assume a family’s response to terminal diagnosis can be predicted by the nature of the disease or the severity of symptoms is to ignore the powerful determinants of past experience with illness, separation, and loss. We will explore the dynamics of families facing death with video case examples and examine guidelines for engagement and treatment.

All workshops are held at:
