Face-to-face intervention addresses interrelation of beneficiary’s
The purpose of a face-to-face intervention is to address the interrelation of the beneficiary’s functioning with the functioning of his or her family unit. The therapist assists the family members in developing a greater understanding of the beneficiary’s psychiatric and/or behavioral disorder and appropriate treatment for this disorder, identifying maladaptive interaction patterns between family members and how they contribute to the beneficiary’s impaired functioning, and identifying and developing competence in utilizing more adaptive patterns of interaction.
