#var:page_name# cover

Family Therapy theory and practice based on the systemic perspective are, at large, originated and developed in the Western context in the past 60 years. In the Asian region, family therapists have been working hard to fit these theories within an Eastern cultural context. This presentation will firstly, explore Western cultural values which are embedded in the family systems theory and family therapy. In doing so, cultural essentialism will also be examined. This is then followed by a discussion on challenges faced by therapists when working with Asian families. This talk will conclude with recognising unique strengths and resilience of Asian families, as well as the importance of viewing families from a multidimensional perspective.
