You will integrate all of this knowledge and skills with awareness of your own capacities and limitations and synthesise this information to arrive at unique effective courses of intervention with the difficulties experienced by each of your client families. You will continue in your live supervised clinical groups to see families registered with The Bouverie Centre and in this context will refine and deepen your competence as family therapists.
