Hi Palwinder,

I appreciate you sharing some of the difficulties you are facing working with families. I too am experiencing something similar with a few families. One of the things I found helpful was having conversations with family alone, the client separately and if agreeable, coming together and having collaborative conversations about the client’s limitations and recovery and what recover looks for the client. It can be difficult seeing the families and clients so far apart in their understanding about recovery in mental health, but I think we just keep going and try our best to engage everyone involved from a place of empathy.
