Helping Families Flourish


Accessing the Family through the Trust as an Integrated Emotional Unit - VIDEO

May 16, 2014 7:32 AM | Daniel P. Felix (Administrator)
In this video, the Chicago Trustee Collaboratory addresses a few key issues around the concept of thinking of the family as an integrated emotional unit.

The Collaboratory’s insights include:
  • This is a “must” concept to be accessed as soon as possible.
  • It helps the family work together and do what what’s best.
  • Helps those working with the family to understand their non-rational reactions.
  • Honors alignment over agreement in governance.
  • Communication and acceptance is key. Consider using thinking circles.
This is one of the points raised by Kathy Wiseman in Chapter 2 of "Trustworthy" - and one of 10 key points the Collaboratory identifies in the book.
