A word from the President of EFTA
Dear EFTA Colleagues, Many of us in the late 1960’s, may remember singing Bob Dylan’s “The Times they are a-Changin’”:
Come gather round people wherever you roam, And admit that the waters around you have grown, And accpt it that soon You’ll be drenched to the bone. If your time to you is worth savin’
Then you’d better start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone, For the times they are a-changin’. Now, after over 10 years into this new century, these lyrics are again relevant. In the midst of socioeconomic unpredictable developments, crises and imminent stress, we may ask: what are the processes that make it more likely that families overcome adversity and how do we as family therapists help families through these difficult periods?
