Description

In Functional Family Therapy, Dr. James F. Alexander demonstrates his approach to working with families with youth at risk. This approach focuses on the strengthening relationships in the family by opening up communication and reframing negative behaviors by putting them within a positive relational context.

In this session, Dr. Alexander works with two daughters and their mother and stepfather. Initially, he assesses the state of family relations and works with the family to highlight the strengths they exhibit and ways they can work toward understanding and improving their relationships.
