FAMILY THERAPY THEORY AND PRACTICE A
Credit points: 30
In this subject students are guided in their integration with their current skills of an indepth understanding of family therapy theoretical models concerning systemic processes in general, and relating to development within the family context. In lectures/seminars students will explore theories and engagement skills with an emphasis on respectful and collaborative practice. These theories and skills will then be applied by way of observation of their teachers, and their own role play, and live or videotaped clinical work in small supervised groups. Emphasis in this semester will be on using the theoretical frameworks provided to reflect, with the assistance of the supervisor and small group, on their own clinical skill development in the context of their personal and professional history and in formulating, setting and working on goals for improved competence.
