Reluctance or lack of motivation to engage on the part of families made it hard for staff to be truly collaborative with them Professionals building trust and rapport, working creatively and persevering despite the family’s lack of contact or motivation were all facilitating factors for engagement

Seems to be blaming families when things don’t work. Pdocs/other mental health staff are abysmal for taking any form of responsibility for their part in anything.
First time my wife went with me she was asked intrusive questions like what I was like in bed. That put her off accompanying me. The next time she came(years later) she tried describing things she had noticed only to be curtly and rudely told to shut up.
Although both times my wife had shown her willingness to be involved the psychiatrists etc behaved like ignorant pigs and did nothing to engage with her in the process of supporting me throughout our being together.
