Transcript of CFIM: Calgary Family Intervention Model

Domains of Family Functioning:
1. Cognitive
2. Affective
3. Behavioural
Calgary Family Intervention Model:
Significant Points:
Effectiveness of the intervention
How well the intervention meshes with the specific family
Fit= when an intervention softens suffering or causes change
May involve trial and error
A change in 1 domain can affect the other 2 domains

The biggest changes are seen when interventions focus on the cognitive domain

Interventions must fit well with the family to be effective
Relevance to Nursing:
Allows the nurse to tailor interventions to an individual family

Promotes critical thinking about family dynamics and family development in order to choose an effective and supportive intervention

Establishes a therapeutic nurse-client relationship
