Experiential and Narrative Family Therapy The Smiths

Experiential and Narrative Family Therapy The Smiths a family of five present with their 14-year-old male son Joshua who is identified as “the patient.” Almost immediately the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner notices the subtle struggle between the parents to be heard first often talking over one another. Joshua finally blurts out “You see you two are crazy and you think it’s me.” Joshua’s father immediately becomes angry and Joshua’s mom is quick to rush to Joshua’s side. She begins to argue with her husband about his treatment of their son. The Smiths and other clients like them may be candidates for both experiential therapy and narrative family therapy and it is important to note that these are distinctly different therapeutic approaches. Experiential therapy examines experiences of the “here and now” whereas narrative family therapy focuses on retelling one’s story to understand why one behaves in certain ways. When assessing client families and selecting one of these therapies you must not only select the one that is best for the clients but also the approach that most aligns to your own skill set. This week you compare experiential family therapy and narrative family therapy. Assignment: Experiential Versus Narrative Family Therapies Although experiential therapy and narrative  therapy are both used in family therapy these therapeutic approaches have many differences in theory and application.

    people want more? I mean Experiential therapy examines experiences of the “here and now” whereas narrative family therapy focuses on retelling one’s story to understand why
    one behaves in certain ways is a little vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s front page and note
    how they create article headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve got
    to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
