Social Work Practice With Families: Summary of I'd Hear Laughter
In this video, Insoo Kim Berg shows us how to help a family come together as a whole to build on their strengths and collaborate on solutions. Berg demonstrates her approach in two therapy sessions with a family. Judy is at wits end with her husband, Lou, who won't help out at home and with her daughter, Sarah, who prefers to hang out with her boyfriend instead of going to school. Sarah is sick of her mother nagging her and of the tense atmosphere at home. Lou is struggling with unemployment and admits that the family doesn't laugh anymore. Berg uses techniques to reconnect this family so that they can build on what has brought them together in the past and hear laughter in the home again.
