POSTMODERN FAMILY FORMATION
Not currently offered
Credit points: 20
In this unit, students are provided with an appreciation of family diversity and a sound understanding of current trends in post-modern family formation. Students will explore the implications of culture, gender, sexuality, class and the therapeutic relationship in the application of systemic theory and practice in work with families and communities that experience marginalisation and discrimination with particular reference to gay and lesbian-led families. The intersections and tensions between therapeutic endeavour and socio-political, legal and advocacy contexts will be considered.
