How to Engage the Entire Traumatized Family
Dr. Scott Sells of the Family Trauma Institute presents a special webinar for the Complex Trauma Therapist Network. Dr. Sells will be joined by Dzmitry Karpuk, Director of the Complex Trauma Therapist Network.

It takes a village to raise a child is an old African proverb. It means that a child needs both the immediate and extended family to overcome adverse experiences like trauma and to grow up in a safe and secure environment. If the family is involved, it is only those members of the immediate household living under the same roof. The extended family of friends, ex-spouses, relatives, or institutions are rarely engaged or actively involved. And if they are, their roles and function are not well defined. Therefore, the key questions are: “Why does this happen?” and “How do we overcome this?”

Dr. Sells will share the FST Motivational Technique to quickly engage and locate the family's extended family or village as well as who is supportive and non-supportive.

Dr. Sells will be available to answer questions at the end of the presentation.
