Counseling: Family Assessment (Sequential Family Addiction Model)


Throughout this course you will continually apply the skills you learn in small snippets, but by the end of the course you will develop an integrated treatment plan for providing systemic family counseling to your “clients.” The “clients” will be based on a family in a film or series of your choice. You are free to use any model or approach, but you need to identify the rationale for your approach using theory or research. 

This assignment is designed to help you get ahead on the final treatment plan you have due later in the course. Please select the film or series with the family that you would like to use. The film or series must offer enough material that you can see family interactions and family dynamics at work. This cannot be a movie about addiction that happens to include a family member, otherwise the treatment plan will lack sufficient depth.
