Dominic’s personal belief is that the key role of being an interventionist does not lie with just the relationship between individual and the therapist, it is a commitment to the family from a holistic approach. The individual’s progress and growth are a combination of all environmental factors including family welfare, family stress levels etc. Hence, Dominic believes committing towards a multidisciplinary model of intervention where the whole family is under the care of many specialists.
