The Certificate in Working With Families is an online family therapy training course, focusing on providing experienced and in-training counsellors with family counselling skills through a high-quality online training course.  

Systemic and Family Therapy approach aims to assist families and complex human systems to mobilise their own strengths and relationships to make disturbing symptoms less problematic for suffering individuals.  

The key difference between systemic and family therapy approach and all the many variations of individual psychological interventions, is that while individual therapy gives one person the space to discuss and reflect during ‘time out’ of their human system, systemic therapy brings parts or all of the system into the therapy. It focuses on theories and practices that enable practitioners to understand problems, recognise resources and create and maintain solutions. Family and Systemic Therapy will enable practitioners to develop knowledge and skills to the level that best supports both the individual in the context of their family as well as more complicated systems in their practice.  

Knowledge of and skills in systemic approaches are also applicable for helping professionals in working in systems such as organisations and teams.  

Upon completing this family therapy course, participants will be able to do the following.  

  • Articulate a fundamental understanding of family systems theory
  • Describe assessment, treatment planning, some interventions, and evaluation in the family system
  • Compare, and contrast two or more approaches in family therapy
  • Describe family developmental processes as they relate to the family lifecycle
  • Describe how problems develop, are maintained, and are resolved within a family system.
  • Apply basic family dynamics in a focused conversation with a family member
  • Describe families as distinct cultural systems, embedded in and influenced by other sociocultural systems
