How will the worksheet help?
The worksheet will provide guidance related to an activity that can be utilised in family therapy with all family members present. The purpose of this activity is to encourage open communication within the family. It will also help the therapist identify issues within the family unit that need to be probed further and addressed in the therapy sessions.

The questions at the end of the activity can be decided based on the responses or could be general discussion questions about what they learned from the activity about each other.
