In this subject students will be provided with the opportunity to develop introductory skills in the assessment and therapeutic responses to children, adolescents and families, in an age and stage sensitive way, from both an individual and systemic perspective. The program will assist in developing an understanding of the more common presentations encountered in child and family settings. The impact of marital and family issues upon children and adolescents will be covered. This subject will provide students with an understanding of lifespan development and how disruptions to the normal sequence of development impact on individuals. A specific focus on the development of self will further elucidate how developmental disruptions affect conceptions of self, and how such disruptions may suggest particular therapeutic interventions.
