Basic Certificate Course in Family Therapy (Spring 2020)
Family therapy is an important development in the field of relationship science. Current research has shown that it is a particularly effective approach in working with child and adolescent problems, trans-generational conflicts and a range of mental health problems including depression and eating disorders. In Hong Kong, the need for family-oriented human service workers is on the rise so as to cope with an increasing number of domestic conflicts related to problems in the family in recent years.
This course is designed for human service professionals who are interested in gaining more knowledge in systemic perspective and its application to various professional fields. Using video segments of actual family interviews, the course will cover the theoretical bases, conceptual frameworks, and skills in marriage and family therapy. A unique feature of the course lies in its heavy emphasis on live clinical data in raising students’ awareness of theoretical application to clinical practice.
