DESCRIPTION OF PARTNER
The Institute as part of a bigger organization with interest in offering different social activities is dedicated in offering therapeutic help for families and couples. 70% of them are besides their life crisis psychiatric diagnosed. and a part of them are in a psychotic state. There is a close connection to the youth welfare system offering service and treatment in child protection work. The treatment philosophy is the systemic treament approach, representing different strands like: solutionfocused, narrative and collaborative orientation.
In working with families and couples there is the challenge of identified individuals – i.e. as patients – as the bearer of a psychiatric disorder. To see this life crisis not as an individualized item, but as part of the ongoing communication and transaction in the relationship is a major task of our work. Using the network approach involving also the pre-treating institution, the child protection services is the more human way of understanding a life crisis. There is an ongoing interest to use the finish modell of OD.
