In addition to sharing valuable insights, Nancy’s conversational tone and ability to show vulnerability in her practice brings her listeners in, creates a space for empathy and learning, and inspires us to connect at a deeper level with more people. And, one hopes, we will all make a bigger impact because of that.

Clinical Consultation Breakfast 7: Family is the Best Medicine: Strengthening Family Therapy Skills to Support Children in Crisis

American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry's 66th Annual Meeting
Chicago, IL

Presented by Dr. Rappaport and Dr. John Sargent

Cultivating the ability to strengthen families is vital to supporting children and adolescents in crisis. Attendees gain the ability to look at clinical problems as challenges for the family to resolve with help of the child and adolescent psychiatrist and develop skills that enable them to foster this collaboration. In reviewing cases presented by attendees, presenters look at common themes of families that are “stuck” and discuss approaches that enhance closeness, encourage effective limits, and build understanding and support in the family. Attendees learn to use encouraging interactions within and with families to alter problematic relationships and promote effective family function and recovery.
