FAMILY THERAPY THEORY AND PRACTICE C

FTH5TPC

2018

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

In this subject students will expand their use of family therapy theoretical models to include post-modern approaches as they further refine their knowledge and skills in assessing and analysing family situations and their own capacities to work effectively with them. Approaches explored in the lectures/seminars will be integrated with knowledge and skills from first year to work in small live clinical groups supervised by experienced family therapy supervisors with families registered with The Bouverie Centre. Students will continue to assess, evaluate and intervene with the contribution of influences from their own personal and professional contexts in order to maximise their clinical effectiveness.
