“I lead because I follow” was the deceptively powerful distillation of theory and practice that drew generations of clinicians to learn from the “Southern Gentleman” of family therapy, John T. Edwards, PhD. Moving the addictions treatment field toward a fuller integration of family systems during his prolific career, John was especially beloved for his ability to render complex dynamics accessible to a wide range of human service professionals.
This training will employ practical skill-building, discussion, small group exercise, and archival video footage, to advance the body of work of this innovative pioneer in the art of engaging families. Participants are encouraged to use this training as an opportunity for ongoing immersion in family systems theory, advancing the utilization of family systems in human service, and supporting the mission of the John T. Edwards Foundation (www.johntedwardsfoundation.org).
