Afternoon session Interview with Anna Lloyd
Individual, Couple and Family Therapist in Private Practice in Inner West Sydney.

Trauma & addictions: How the family system mediates this linkage
About Anna Lloyd
Work within a Bowen family systems frame recognises that any extended focus on feeling responses reduces the ability of the survivor to think rationally, to have access to her higher cortical functions, and consequently set a course of action, guided by her own principles and values. Thus the focus is not on the reparative relationship of therapist and client, given this can replicate the original fusion from which the survivor is trying to escape.
