Therapeutic Assessment with Children (TA-C) is a brief semi-structured intervention in which psychological assessment is used to help families with children and adolescents to change. In this paper we introduce the TA-C model, describe its semi-structured format and exemplify how it can be applied by family therapists.
Although family therapy was born to deal with problems posed by severe mental disorders, systemic therapists today tend to drift away from the field of psychiatry. The author refers to his own experience in psychiatry to argue in favour of the presence of the systemic model within the field: systemic understanding might be precious to counterbalance the tendency toward too easy a reliance on bio-psychiatry and pharmacology. In turn, keeping close to psychiatry and to its problems can be useful to systemic therapists, by involving them in social and epistemological queries that are otherwise extraneous to professionals mainly devoted to private practice.
