Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Family Therapy
Narrative Therapy provides clients the opportunity to regain their ability to develop positive relationships by healing past wounds. It can be used in individual, family, adoption and couples contexts.
This type of therapy offers a respectful and non-blaming approach which acknowledges each person as the author of his or her own life. Narrative therapy assumes that people have a range of inner resources that help them deal with difficulties and problems in their lives.
Narrative therapy can be used with children, adults, in groups, couples and individuals. It can help them cope with traumatic events without the need to discuss it directly.

Similar in some ways and based on the Emotion-Focused Therapy model from Greenberg and colleagues, EFFT is an evidence-based family therapy approach in which the therapist offers support to caregivers/parents. This equips caregivers/parents with skills, tasks, and emotion basics in order to better support their loved ones who may be struggling with mental health.
