In 2019, The Family Institute celebrated our 50 year anniversary.
The Family Institute was the first family therapy training center in the Midwest. Since its founding, The Family Institute has been committed to research, education and providing therapy services.
Today, The Family Institute is one of the leading centers in the world for comprehensive and systemically oriented psychotherapy integration.
We invite you to read a special piece, written by Dr. Aaron Cooper, in celebration of The Family Institute’s 50th anniversary, about the connection between the health of individuals and the health of their families. Dr. Cooper also explores how notions of family have changed in the past 50 years and will transform in the next few decades.
