This series of articles is for mental-health professionals, educators, and administrators of all levels who serve low-nurturance (dysfunctional) client families and survivors of childhood trauma (Grown Wounded Children - GWCs). The series aims to empower you to provide effective professional service to those you serve. It comes from 33 years' clinical research and systemic experience with over 1,000 typical Midwest U.S. individuals, couples, and families.
The series describes a unique six-phase scheme of assessment and intervention based on a strategic blend of systemic, couple, and individual work and several combined theoretical frameworks. This model has grown from 33 years' private therapy practice specializing in work with divorcing and stepfamily ("low nurturance") clients and Grown Wounded Children (GWCs). The model is being generalized now to apply to all troubled family systems and wounded persons.
