Course Description

Family Therapeutic Skills



This programme is designed to provide students with clinical skills and theoretical underpinnings to inform their work with families.

This course will appeal to those who are interested in family therapy, theory and training. Family Therapists work with relationships in the context of families, couples and other groups. It is a creative, innovative and thought provoking model of Psychotherapy which places sound ethics at the heart of the work.

The principle which informed Family Therapy from the time of its inception in the 1950s has been to transcend simple cause and effect explanations which located deficits within the individual, and to include those aspects of the clients context in the therapy process which will enable them to manage, resolve or better understand their difficulty. It is this ecological view which attends to the interconnectedness of people, of beliefs and of all things, which characterises Family Therapy rather than the number of people sitting in the therapy room.

Students can expect a high quality cutting edge programme that captures and imparts a modern understanding of family therapy informed theory and practice that can be incorporated into a variety of practitioners contexts such as counselling, teaching, psychology, social care and the allied health professions. It is designed to provide students with clinical skills and theoretical underpinnings to inform their work and to gain an understanding of the major theories and models of family psychotherapy, as well as an overview of the social, practical, ethical and cultural issues that arise when working with families.
