Family Therapy Training Program


The Family Therapy Training Program is The Family Institute’s most intensive program for professional development.

The heart of the program is helping to establish mutual relationships in families. We believe that the ultimate, if unacknowledged, goal of all family therapies is an increase in the level of mutuality between family members. As family health improves family members are more able interact in a reciprocally, co-creational manner. Family dysfunction expresses a deep fear that such relationships could be dangerous to family survival. Family therapies strive to promote such relationships and alter these fears.

The Family Institute provides clinical experience with individual, group and live supervision as well as an educational component that meet the requirements of the The Israel Association for Couple and Family Therapy.
