While family education is one of the core evidence-based practices recommended in work with people with mental illness, it is one of the least understood and utilized. In this workshop, you will learn about the stages that families go through when a loved one has a mental illness and supports available in the community. Providers will learn how to teach families how to interact with loved ones who have delusions and hallucinations, depression, and suicidal behavior. You will understand how to help family members to use the four C's to manage feelings of guilt and helplessness and strategies to cope when a seriously ill family member does not want help. Finally, learn the main pitfalls providers fall into when communicating with families that inadvertently alienate families and what it really means when families are described as ""difficult,"" ""over-involved,"" enmeshed,"" or ""demanding"" and how to create meaningful collaborations that contribute to recovery.
