Theory and Practice of Family Therapy (part 1)
This subject is a post-graduate and professional level of study delivered in 2 modules face to face at The Bouverie Centre. In module 1 you will synthesise theoretical and practical contributions from various systemic models of therapy with your pre-existing expertise to conceptualise the needs of families and to formulate the most effective response to them. You will also integrate your knowledge and skills from the previous subjects in this course. Module 2 consists of clinical practice classes where you will work in groups of 6 with a supervisor to practice and refine your skills and knowledge as applied in role-play, discussion and live work using a reflecting team process. A major focus in these classes is reflection on the contribution of your personal and professional history to your values, style and capacities as a therapist and working towards developing these to improve your flexibility in practice.
