Empowerment Family Therapy

Frank Pittman, MD
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Pittman begins by laying the foundation for his light-hearted, playful approach to the serious endeavor of helping families in crisis. Then you'll observe him work with Susan and Tom, a married couple who disagrees about how to parent Tom's ten-year-old daughter. As Pittman offers practical solutions to the various problems the couple presents, he uncovers the layers of resistance to change, including Tom's lack of role-modeling for how to be an effective and involved parent and husband. With optimism and humor, Pittman helps Tom recognize the power he has to make positive changes so that he can be the father and partner he longs to be. Concluding with a lively discussion with an audience of therapists, Pittman shares what he has learned over his forty years working with couples and families in every imaginable crisis. A great role-model for making therapy fun, Pittman shows therapists how to maintain a sense of hopefulness with even the most distressed families.
