Introduction to Family Therapy

A 35 hour, 7 week professional development unit for counsellors & other allied health professionals*

Presenter: David Kong

This course examines the historical origins and contemporary applications of systemic work with families. It examines how the dynamics that operate between family members may contribute to symptoms experienced by vulnerable family members, particularly children and young people. Developmental and contextual factors are examined to take a trans-generational view of family functioning. Theoretical and practical applications of multiple models and theories of family therapy are presented which provide students with the opportunity to develop skills in being able to effectively assess and intervene with families that present for counselling. This requires knowledge of both basic and systemic counselling techniques including the ability to engage respectfully and impartially with all family members, even when issues of safety and risk require appropriate professional and ethical responsiveness.
