Overview

A psycho-educational model for assessing individuals and families.
In Family Wellness Skills, Joseph Hernandez, a longtime Family Wellness trainer and practitioner, shares the foundational concepts of the Family Wellness model to make it accessible to an even broader audience. In it, he provides mental health professionals with a map to guide their clients from recognizing a need for change, to deciding to make a change, to achieving change itself.
Hernandez lays out the core ideas behind Family Wellness—chief among them, balancing individuality with connection; fostering skills for interpersonal health (speaking, listening, and cooperating); and developing and maintaining patterns that work for families (mutual respect, parents in charge, interdependence, and expecting change). He shows all helping professionals how to develop effective treatment plans and practical interventions that take into account a family’s inherent assets. Family Wellness Skills provides a complete, handy guide to the key points of this successful treatment model, so any mental health professional can help families discover and develop their gifts and abilities, making for stronger, healthier relationships.

Editorial Reviews

Cameron Lee
“Over the years, a number of my own therapy students have expressed great appreciation for what they learned through Family Wellness. The concepts are easily understood, communicated, and applied; the skills are practical and portable, and can be quickly integrated into a variety of settings. Thanks to this book, these concepts and skills are available to a wider audience. It will be a valuable resource to new and seasoned therapists alike.”
Carlos J. Gonsalves
