Thank you for starting this discussion Jagjit, I agree that creating an opportunity to understand the families experience of their loved ones illness is important for all of the reasons that my colleagues have cited. Having a tool to guide this conversation would be invaluable as emotions are often a big factor that will need to be navigated, structure allows for less reactivity. It is also important to understand the families perceptions as they may differ from the client and finding ways to help close the gap can aid in restoring family accord. Seeking to understand both perspectives will help us the care providers to facilitate a deeper level of understanding and provide us information about where gaps in knowledge may be. As Grace stated “psychoeducation is so important for success.
