Family therapy and systemic practice courses
We offer two family psychotherapy courses:
Foundation Course in Systemic Thinking and Practice
The course is one-year, part-time, and offers an introduction to systemic theory and concepts and how to apply basic theoretical ideas in your clinical practice. The course is AFT-accredited.
It is designed to enhance clinic skills for those who are working in the mental health profession or who wish to work with families and systems.
The course can be seen as a standalone course that offers knowledge and skills or can be seen as an entry level qualification towards the intermediate course in family therapy and systemic practice.
Intermediate Course in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice
This one-year, part-time, AFT accredited course can be seen as a standalone course that offers knowledge and skills in family therapy & systemic practice.
It is suitable for professionals with a qualification in the fields of health, mental health and social care wishing to enhance their systemic practice and/or to go on to qualifying level training (MSc) in family therapy and systemic practice.
