restorationtherapybookAbout Restoration Therapy

Restoration therapy is a new approach to assessment, treatment and healing in individual, marital and family therapy.  It utilizes techniques and theory that help individuals gain clear insight about their identities and perspectives on relationships as well as giving the therapist a cadre of intervention techniques that move individuals into responsible change of persistent and long standing patterns.  Coming from a tradition of Contextual Family Therapy, the Restoration approach provides the therapist with clarity of assessment of individual and relational issues yet utilizes sound mindfulness strategies to produce real and long-lasting systemic change.  Based on the recent book, Restoration Therapy:  Understanding and Guiding Healing in Marriage and Family Therapy by Terry D. Hargrave and Franz Pfitzer and over 28 years of therapeutic practice, the training opportunity offers a unique blend of teaching and consultation.
