The programme will introduce students to:
• the basic theory and concepts of systemic family practice
• theories of change and "schools" of systemic practice, from structural and Milan through to post-Milan constructionist and narrative approaches
• family life cycles, developmental tasks and inter-generational patterns
• approaches to systemic practice in different settings and with different client groups.
The course will also provide opportunities for students to examine their own personal and professional context from a systemic perspective and to acquire basic systemic practice skills. Students will demonstrate through role play, a range of systemic skills such as genogram construction, circular questions and offering reframes or alternative perspectives.
On successful completion of this course students should be able to describe a range of systemic approaches to family and other relationships and give examples of their application, particularly in their own areas of work. Students will be able to take a critical stance to systemic ideas and their value, and place systemic therapy in a historical context. Students will be able to use systemic ideas to promote anti-discriminatory practice and demonstrate an awareness of the impact of wider social context, with particular reference to race, gender and disability.
