Family Therapy Assessment and Intervention
This course focuses on the practice of systemic and ecosystemic family therapy techniques. Major family therapy models will provide the frameworks for assessment and ethical intervention procedures. Their effectiveness will be critiqued by using criteria set forth by research articles and from clinical practices. In class discussions and role plays, various factors such as race, ethnicity, social class, and the personal profile of the therapist will be shown to have a direct impact on therapeutic interventions. In-class exercises will give students an opportunity to be witnesses and observers of the therapeutic process and to experience therapy as a team effort.
