family psychoeducation

Family psychoeducation is an area of practice that can be crucial to a patient’s success in both treatment and in their  lives. Often times, I meet with families who, by no fault of their own, lack knowledge of their loved one’s condition and/or diagnosis. I am able to clarify questions regarding behavior, sexuality, diagnosis, treatment, interventions, and the healthcare system, to name a few areas. In working with families, I also hope to clarify that no one is to blame for one’s mental health condition, diagnosis, or presentation. It simply is what it is. There is treatment, there are options, and there is hope. Family psychoeducation can be brief or ongoing.
