This certificate course provides a comprehensive overview of family therapy theory and methods of practice. The certificate also includes a section on research findings on effectiveness.
Major schools of family therapy and introduced, their methods explained and their work evaluated, leading to an integrated model of how family therapy can be delivered. The history and development of family therapy is covered. Goals of family therapy are considered, including for diverse lifestyles and sexual orientations and families with disabled or mentally ill members.
The process of how family therapy works is explained according to its various stages, and various styles of intervention are described.
A large portion of the course is devoted to how family therapy can assist with various problems such as: child abuse, conduct disorders, drug abuse, distressing intimate relationships, depression, alcoholism and schizophrenia.
You will also learn about some of the methods and technologies that are used in the training of family therapists.
This unit is for those in the counselling and psychotherapy professions who are new to family therapy, for students on related disciplines and for practitioners who wish to revise and extend their knowledge. Practitioners who are trained in one-to-one therapies may find that the study of family therapy provides valuable insights into why problems are maintained within a family system, giving an expanded therapeutic perspective.
Students will receive lesson plans for written assignments which they may complete and return by email for assessment.
This course is mainly for helping professionals who are thinking of becoming a family therapist, who have an interest in the area, or who refer clients to family therapists. It is an introductory theoretical course and is not intended to qualify you as a family therapist. However this course can act as a complement to other courses or as a refresher and it might also increase your chances of finding a place on a family therapy course that provides practical training.
Qualified and practising counsellors, psychotherapists and hypnotherapists may find this course a welcome addition to their professional portfolio, providing a key area of professional development. Professional societies that operate an unrestricted CEU policy may consider this qualification for CEU purposes.
