As stated by Trotter (2013), “The Collaborative Family Work model draws particularly on three key principles: problem-solving…pro-social modelling…and role clarification” (p. 54).

Therapy sessions are “present” focused and are concerned with identifying and problem solving what needs to be address. The therapy sessions are highly structured and it gets the individual to practise new ways of thinking during the session. Cognitive behaviour interventions are based around psycho-education about pain and does the person understand their pain, many behavioural aspects, coping skills, different approaches in problem solving and how to deal with pain, to eliminate negative thinking and anxiety about pain, to utilize the ABC-E model to aid in identifying and overcoming events that may be impacting on the pain (Keefe, Dunsmore & Burnett 1992).

Family systems therapy is basically evaluating the family system functioning as a unit and there are a few types of family therapy that uses this approach such as “structural family therapy, intergenerational family therapy and strategic family therapy” (Family Solutions Institute MFT Study Guide).

This allows the therapist to get a better understanding of what is going on in the family and the best way to solve
It is important that the counselor makes questioning an important part of the therapy (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The purpose of questioning is to make sure that the family will participate in communicating their experiences (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). When members of the family begin to tell their point of view, the way in which each person was affected is revealed (Shaylee & Brownlee, 2007). The therapist may be able to reach the family members that may have been considered as distant or hostile. Individuals like Gary may be able to feel heard without feeling judged.

These enactments are used to promote a positive change in the family members, to try to change the problematic behavior (Nichols, 2000).
