Training Description:  This four-session training will present information distilled from best-practice structures historically defined as “active ingredients” of therapeutic change imbedded in the three traditional elements of Family Psychoeducation:

  • Joining
  • The Educational Workshop 
  • Multi-Family Groups For Facilitators

Instruction will begin with an examination of the theoretical and empirical foundations as leading to the development of family psychoeducation.  More specifically, FPE Model structures will be presented with differential emphasis on FPE’s effect in working with adults and their natural supports with and without a co-occurring disorder.  Population-specific content for adults will include information on schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Who Should Attend: Social Workers and Clinical Workers who work with adults with schizophrenia or bipolar on a regular basis in a program that accepts Medicaid funding, and who intend to implement FPE group at their agency.  This training is appropriate for social work practice levels of beginning and intermediate.
