What Will You Learn?

This course takes you through the various life stages of humans as individuals, couples and families along with detailing exactly how therapy works and the vast variation of skills and types of couples and family therapy, in a progressive manner.

The course is designed to aid the understanding of relationships and family associated problems. Beginning with discussions from the outset on overall needs for therapy, the syllabus maps the ongoing changes in relationships, such as sociological and environmental factors, as well as how relationships have changed throughout the generations.

Thought patterns and communication techniques are examined in detail as well as how these factors can damage or harm a relationship should they go wrong. It doesn't stop at just the relationship between couples themselves, the course delves deeper into the effects of these occurrences on the entire family.

The information covered during this course is widely used by couple and family therapists and should give you a much greater understanding of the relationships within your own life along with being able to advise others in a holistic manner.

People and relationships are often not straightforward. The more we understand about ourselves the better placed we will be to become able to change in our relationships and lives as a whole and make a positive change for the better.

In the final part of this course, you will learn about the therapy techniques involved in resolving these issues and the options available to the therapist when working with families or couples.

Should you wish to continue your studies into this subject after completing the course, the final module will suggest informative guidance opportunities for further professional development as well as enhancing methods of relationship focussed psychotherapy.

If you are looking to move into clinical practice after learning the basics during this course, then the role of the family psychotherapist is regulated and requires a university gained qualification. There are many degree courses available to explore on completion of this course.
