COUN 250-01 - Family Systems, Theories and Applications

September 9, 2019 - December 9, 2019, Monday, 4:15pm - 7:00pm

This course provides an introduction to the theories and practice of family therapy, and includes an overview of family systems theories: natural systems, psychodynamic, experiential, structural, communications, strategic, and postmodern. The content covers three essential areas of study: (a) theoretical concepts and models of systems theory and family therapy, along with related research and professional issues; (b) practical information, techniques, and procedures; and (c) issues concerning today’s couples and families, including those family contexts that do not conform to the traditional nuclear family model. Throughout the course, all contexts relevant to the process of therapy, including gender, culture, and ethnicity, will be explored. The impact of domestic violence (DV), gender, and culture on family dynamics will also be reviewed.
