Family Psycho-Education

This is an evidence based practice in which consumers and their families/natural supports meet in multifamily groups twice a month.  The goal of the group is to help families reduce their expressed emotion by using tools called “family guidelines” while at the same time problem solving issues so as to further the consumer’s recovery.  This is a closed group led by specially trained staff, and lasting for about a year’s duration.
