Christie Eppler, program director and professor in Couples and Family Therapy, presented “The Resilient Family Therapist” at the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy's 2018 National Conference in Louisville. 

Eppler’s presentation explored how couples and family therapists can augment their self-care practices by using components of resiliency theory. Resiliency is a process of thriving, coping and mediating risk by focusing on strengths, resources and the positives. Eppler’s presentation included several narrative therapy theory-based activities that clinicians can use to enhance their own and clients’ strength-based self-care practices.
