YPAS - Flourishing Families
Explore Difficulties as a Family
Systemic Family Practice (SFP) is a way of talking together that supports family members to explore difficult thoughts and feelings safely; to understand each other’s experiences and views and be more able to help each other. We do not take sides or blame, but support you to find your own solutions, while respecting a family’s culture, family member’s ages, needs and preferences.
