Family Psychoeducation: Introduction to Evidence-Based Practices

 

Severe mental illness is not just a challenge for the person experiencing symptoms. It can also be challenging for the person’s family members, who may have little knowledge about mental illness, are often not included in its treatment, and are given no access to information on how to understand, communicate, and intervene with someone who is experiencing difficult-to-manage symptoms. There is increasing evidence that the inclusion of the consumer’s families into the ongoing treatment and recovery process tends to achieve the best outcomes. This course presents an overview of family psychoeducation, an evidence-based intervention model that engages family members and other relevant community members as partners in the treatment process. You will be provided with an overview of family psychoeducation as well as its core components, objectives, and benefits. You will also learn about cultural competence skills that practitioners need to have before successfully implementing this model. This course, which is appropriate for behavioral health professionals of all levels, includes interactive exercises and detailed case studies to reinforce your learning so that you can establish a good foundation for incorporating family psychoeducation into your practice.
