Research Forum – Family and Relationship Therapy

PACFA is hosting five Research Forums in 2015 to provide an opportunity for practitioners and academics to discuss implications of the research findings from literature reviews into the effectiveness of therapeutic modalities practised under the banner of PACFA. The literature reviews were commissioned by the PACFA Research Committee from 2012-2014.

These events are free for all participants and refreshments will be provided.

In the first Research Forum on Family and Relationship Therapy, a panel will lead discussion based on findings of The effectiveness of family and relationship therapy. The Forum will include an overview of the research evidence, interactive discussion with Panel members, and a question and answer session.

All PACFA Research Forums count for 3 points of Category A Continuing Professional Development for PACFA Registrants.
