Reply To: Client Family Education


I agree with you Jaglit, that these questions would help me to remember to shift my focus to the family from time to time. I think it is easy to get caught up in the client work. I also think the questions allow as great starting points for a rich conversation. If you asked these questions and then reflected back answers I imagine a very useful conversation could ensue. I think family members would feel more understood, and this in turn might make them more receptive to information and feedback. I also imagine that these questions would cause family members to reflect on how they are processing their new situation, and also normalize some of what they are likely feeling and experiencing. Overall I could see these being helpful, even if you didn’t get to ask all of them.
