Social Dynamix offers Action Based Family Treatment
co-lead by Carol and Dr. Jonathan Bass, M.D.
Action Based Family Treatment (ABFT) assists families with communication challenges that result in family stress and conflict.
Unlike traditional family therapy where issues are simply discussed, action is the core tenant in the ABFT process.
While in session, family members re-enact recent struggles they have experienced. This exercise permits individuals to switch roles and in doing so view the problem from another family member’s perspective.
Since the work emanates from real-life events, it expedites the speed in which central issues emerge and are addressed. This exercise helps to expose and diffuse conflict, ease tensions, and facilitate the family interacting more positively as a unit.
This format is particularly useful for parents unclear how to address their child’s behavior and seeking new and more effective communication approaches.
"Carol has helped both my daughter and my entire family.
Her insights, creativity and energy are unlike anything I have ever seen - and it works!
She incorporates movement and props to get to the heart of the matter quickly and effectively.
One minute you're doing something silly and next you've had a big aha moment.
My daughter adores Carol, and for me it's a relief to know that there is another caring adult in her life."
