The Family Model

The Family Model provides clinicians and managers with a brief, accessible and practical approach to family focused practice with parents, their children and relatives, when one or more family members experiences mental health challenges.

This website provides essential information about The Family Model, who should use it and how it can enhance family focused practice. There is access to a free online eLearning skills-focused course as well as options for consultation, training and supervision from an expert advisory group. The Family Model Handbook and additional resources are also available.

We want to increase the network of clinicians, managers and researchers using The Family Model to improve collaborative practice with parents, partners, children and relatives. Please share your stories, expertise and questions and let us know how we can assist your efforts.
