SYSTEMIC MODEL OF INTERVENTION
Cohesion Counseling and Intervention Services
This model of intervention, developed by Wayne Raiter, seeks to treat the entire family, versus just the Identified patient. It includes three phases: Systemic Intervention, Systemic Treatment and Systemic Reintegration.
In the first phase, the focus is on changing the family paradigm away from shame-based interaction to positive and healing interaction.
The second phase will address the component of each individual member getting one-on-one help, as well as the entire family system. This can last a while, as treatment moves from the acute phase to a treatment maintenance phase.
The third phase focuses on reintegrating the Identified Patient into a new system that supports recovery and has been deconstructed from the old shame based system.
This model of intervention does not focus on time frames for each phase. Instead it uses an overall concept of the interventionist being involved for a year, which gives the family system time to go through treatment. It also allows for reintegrating and working to solidify new healthy ways of relating and living.
