Systemic Practice (Intermediate Course)

Course Description

Programme Information

This is a part-time course which is a significant and useful training in its own right but also connects the Foundation course and the advanced clinical training (MSc in Systemic Family Therapy). It is designed for people who have successfully completed a Foundation course (LFTRC or other AFT accredited course) or equivalent training.

Students learn how to engage families, couples and individuals in systemic therapeutic work and study the use of systemic ideas in clinical practice.

The course consists of approximately 18 Wednesday evening sessions and 2 full day sessions over the academic year. The course follows a similar structure to the Foundation Course with a greater focus on the application of systemic skills with opportunities to develop and practice these throughout the course.

Assessment Methods

Students' progress is monitored through attendance, participation in lectures and tutorials, assessed essays, an exam and a learning log.

Professional Body Accreditation

This course is recognised by the Association for Family Therapy & Systemic Practice.
