Much has been written about the global implementation of the Calgary Family Assessment and Intervention Models (CFAM/CFIM) and the application of these practice models in various clinical settings. The purpose of this article is to provide a brief update on the background of CFAM/CFIM, and the current applications of the models as evidenced in the English-language literature. Little has been written about the use of CFAM/CFIM in a personal context, however. As originators of the models, we offer our own narratives and reflections about the reciprocity between the personal and professional applications of our models and the ways that our personal experiences have extended our understanding about the utility of the models for clinical practice with families.
