NEW CONCEPTS IN FAMILY PSYCHOLOGY: RECONNECTION OF COUPLES, FAMILIES AND CULTURES; THROUGH AFFINITY, LOVE AND COMPASSION
How does the social, economic and gender status in families create submission, alienation, psychological schisms, closed systems and the "Psychology of the Enemy"?
Why are triangulation and alienation more evident in closed family systems within the dominant submissive model? How do family exclusions occur? How can families lessen the consequences of inequality? How can families who live with exclusions, triangulations and cut-offs live with less pain and more love? How can the process of de-triangulation occur?
Dr Neil will address these issues and propose solutions for improvement of family functioning. Treatment options will be discussed, to enable open systems, gender equality in parenting, reconnection of couples, de-triangulation of families, and promoting the "Psychology of Compassion".
The Family Chessboard (1995 & 2012) technique which can be applied to clinical settings where physical movement in the consulting room is limited will be described. This and other new therapeutic ideas and techniques will be presented.
