Family Externship 2020: May 25-28, 2020

#FamilyExternship2020 in Switzerland, May 25-28, 2020

Do you have a passion for assisting families experiencing serious illness?  Would you like to learn how to address and soften illness suffering and promote healing in individuals and families?

Join us for a memorable 4-day Family Externship workshop.

Where: Zurich University of Applied Sciences in beautiful Winterthur, Switzerland (20 minutes by train from Zurich)

When: May 25-28, 2020 (register here)

The “Family Systems Care” that will be presented will be guided by the Illness Beliefs Model and the Trinity Model that we have developed.

Nurses and all health care practitioners, educators, and researchers are welcome to attend. In addition to linking the theory of family assessment and intervention to exemplars from our practice and research, we will also conduct a demonstration family interview with a local family suffering with serious illness.

We have offered this Family Externship workshop experience throughout the world and this will be our 5th Family Externship in Switzerland.  Come and be part of this learning experience together.
