Course Summary

Course overview

You will develop an understanding of systemic theory and practice which will underpin your work with diverse families and organisations. It is the most advanced prequalifying course in systemic approaches and constitutes the best preparation for the clinical training in the UK it is validated by the University of Essex and accredited by The Association of Family Therapy (AFT).

Course outline

Systemic family therapy involves working therapeutically with individuals together with their families and/or significant others, and enables the use of individuals’ relationships as a resource. It can sometimes include relational work with individuals, psychoeducational approaches and multiple family groups.

This course will allow you to develop an understanding of systemic ideas and skills which can be applied to your work context. You will learn how to reflect on the personal and professional dimensions and start to identify and understand multiple contexts. This will widen your perspective when thinking and reflecting on your clinical practice.
