Failure to Launch Seminar – Jerome Price

On June 19, 2020, Jerome Price, Director of the Michigan Family Institute, presented an inservice training seminar for the clinical staff of Birmingham Maple Clinic about Failure To Launch; young adults who resist leaving home.  

This was the first inservice training seminar presented remotely on Zoom since the pandemic of COVID-19 resulted in the clinic shifting to telehealth services from in-person sessions.

Jerome Price described his Family Systems theoretical approach as a hierarchical reinforcement of the family structure; returning the power in the family to the parents to create and implement a plan to assist the young adult to separate from the family home.  He stated that often the symptoms the young adult experiences are a metaphor for the family conflicts.
