At the Catalyst Center we practice Collaborative/Therapeutic Assessment, a well-researched, individualized approach to assessment that has been shown to be beneficial to those who participate in it. We use assessment as an opportunity for brief treatment geared towards answering your questions and planning your next steps towards living the life you desire. Check out this weekly series highlighting The Catalyst Center’s approach to assessment and what types of testing we can do for you.
Family Assessment is an intensive, brief treatment approach based on the principles of collaborative/therapeutic assessment.
Sometimes looking at the whole system is more effective than focusing on only one of its parts. This philosophy is underlying modern approaches to family therapy. Likewise, it makes sense to assess what is going on in a whole family rather than look at one person in isolation.
Especially when children are involved, we find understanding how the whole family works together (identifying each person’s individual style and how they all interact) allows us to better help the child and the parents and often opens up new ways of understanding that we might have missed were we only looking at the child in isolation.
Many parents seek us out for family assessment when they feel like nothing they have tried is working. We take the time to intensively understand every person in your family and work with the whole family to make important changes that can help you move back into better connected peaceful relationship with each other.
