Object-Relations Family Therapy
How can Object-Relations theory be applied to family therapy?

Judy, Adrian, and Pam (their 32 year-old daughter) are stuck. They don’t understand why Pam--who still lives at home--is so uncooperative. In this live session with Jill and David Scharff, this troubled family gains insight into Pam’s behavior by coming face-to-face with the pain they’ve been avoiding for ten years: the tragic suicide of Pam’s brother, Victor. Experience how the Scharffs masterfully create a psychological “holding environment” for the family, allowing them to begin to mourn the mysterious and violent loss of their beloved son and brother.

Using their own countertransference reactions as clues to what is going on beneath the surface, the Scharffs join with the Adrian, Judy, and Pam to create thought-provoking interpretations that help this family understand Pam’s symptoms in a whole new light. The compelling session is followed by a fascinating discussion with a live audience of therapists who grapple with the nuances of the Object-Relations Family Therapy approach.
