Single Session Family Consultation in Practice

This half-day workshop is the practice companion to The Bouverie Centre’s Single Session Family Consultation (SSFC) self-paced online course that aims to bridge the gap between ‘knowing’ and ‘doing.’ It provides you with an opportunity to consolidate your knowledge of SSFC and enhance the application of these ideas in your clinical practice.

Put into practice the skills at the convening, conducting and follow-up stages of SSFC in a supportive small group context. Particular attention is paid to the feedback process so that your learning is maximised.

What will you learn?

By attending this workshop, you will:

  • Build on your existing knowledge of SSFC as a practical, doable model of family engagement and inclusion
  • Have a unique opportunity to practice skills of SSFC in a supportive small group setting where you will receive relevant and helpful feedback
  • Become ‘practice ready’ in the use of SSFC
  • Be able to work through the issues of how to get started in making SSFC part of your current practice

Prerequisite

Completion of The Bouverie Centre’s Single Session Family Consultation self-paced online suite in the last 12 months.

Relevant Audience

SSFC in Practice is relevant for those who want a clear and straightforward practice model for engaging and including families in their work, but who are not family therapists. It is particularly suitable for those working in individually oriented services for adults and young people (such as mental health and alcohol and drug services) where working with families is not the primary focus.

Workshop Style

This is an implementation-focused workshop led by a subject expert who is also a clinician. There will be small group practice activities and case discussions, along with the exploration of ideas to help make SSFC part of your practice repertoire.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions about any aspect of SSFC and its applications and receive advice about how to start using SSFC within your work role and setting.
