Purpose: The aim of the narrative is to describe the therapeutic process and experience from a psychiatric nursing perspective, in therapeutic communication, with a father and his son in acute psychiatry. Methods: In this case scenario, the Family Strength-Oriented Therapeutic Conversation Intervention (FAM-SOTC Intervention) was used. Findings: The FAM-SOTC Intervention was found to be beneficial for the father-son relationship. Practice Implication: It is encouraging for nurses in acute psychiatry to know that three short therapeutic conversations can make a difference within the family system. FAM-SOTC seemed to offer cognitive and emotional support to the father-and-son dyad.
