Sample text

The Contribution of Family Therapy to Social Rehabilitation I hope I have painted a picture which has reflected the very difficult times we all had in Simon’s early years of experiencing mental health problems. At the time of writing, it is just so great to be able to say how well Simon is now doing and to reflect on the progress he has made that we would never have dreamed was possible several years ago. We still meet regularly, albeit at Simon’s request only around every 3 months, for a session called BFT (one therapist has remained throughout and the other is Simon’s current key worker), but in truth these are more care programme reviews or, to be more specific, they are meetings at which we discuss Simon’s social rehabilitation.

He is really proud of the family unit and gives it very high priority at all times. For my own part, since retiring, I have become an active and involved carer with a part-time role in promoting and facilitating carer involvement and a full portfolio of speaking and training engagements on a variety of mental health topics, and I feel that I contribute more to society than ever before. This would certainly never have happened without BFT. Simon’s improvement in recent times has helped us to forget the many difficult times of the past, but we have to remember that our aspirations for him in life have changed dramatically since he was a schoolboy of potential.

If we did not have time to deal with a particular query, we always addressed it next time round. The really practical outcomes that we talked and learned about were family meetings (which I will come back to later in the chapter) and problem solving. We did not realise when we did the problem-solving work just how often we would use this simple technique (or at least our version of it) in the future. The session on early warning signs proved the most problematical due to Simon’s vulnerability to so many of these signs.
