Workshop description:

The Family Cycle is a unique therapeutic model which was created at the Yale Child Study Center in order to treat abused children and their families. The model provides a clinical framework to facilitate the treatment of families with complex multigenerational trauma and promote mentalization in high-risk parents. It is informed by attachment theory, family systems theory, and current literature on reflective functioning. Over the years this model was implemented within the context of an intensive home-based, family-focused intervention and more.
