Abstract / Summary
At some time or another, most families experience changes, then experience stress resulting from the changes, and then go into crisis-mode. However, not all families have a crisis as a result of the stress from change. Resilient families are able to rebound from adversity, to flex in response to the pressures and strains of everyday family life, to become stronger after the change, and to adapt with more resources at their disposal. Resiliency refers to the coping strengths of the individual members, and the combined coping strengths of the family as a whole. Families who exhibit resiliency are flexible when dealing with stress, have coping strengths that can be called upon when experiencing a stressor, and have the ability to reorganize in the face of stress to become stronger and better.In order to maintain an effective and useful family unit, family members must develop skills for managing change, coping with stress, and building resiliency from external and internal stressors. The Family Change & Crisis Workbook provides assessments and self-guided activities to help family members explore old patterns of interaction and behavior that are no longer effective, and to identify ways to develop more effective interactions and behaviors. Many choices of self-exploration assessments and activities are provided for family members to use collaboratively with other family members to develop a healthy family unit.The Family Change & Crisis Workbook is designed to be used either independently or as part of an integrated curriculum. You may administer any of the assessments and the guided self-exploration activities to an individual or multiple family members with whom you are working, or you may administer any of the activities over multiple sessions. Feel free to pick and choose those assessments and activities that best lead to the outcomes you desire. The assessments and activities are divided into four chapters to help you identify and select assessments easily and quickly.Chapter I: Family Changes This chapter helps family members explore the types and intensity of the stressful changes the family is currently going through.Chapter II: Family Stress This chapter helps family members explore how well they are managing their current family stress and explore ways to cope more effectively with change and stress.Chapter III: Family Crisis This chapter helps family members explore how difficult a change can be on some or all family members and ways to manage and cope with issues and crises.Chapter IV: Family Resilience This chapter helps family members explore ways that the family can come together and build resilience as a family after stressful changes and crises.
