Addressing an entire family system can be challenging, leading some practitioners to opt only to focus on the youth in front of them. However, ignoring the larger context in which the youth operates misses the opportunity for additional support and lasting change. Research demonstrates the positive impact that familial involvement has on outcomes and provides concrete strategies that practitioners can use for engaging families. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the evidence and examine their attitudes about working with families in this interactive virtual workshop. Particular attention will be paid to engaging families post-crisis.
