UPCOMING Marriage and Family Therapy Course
Developmental Stages and the Life Cycle of the Family in a Multicultural Framework
(A Family Studies Course)

Offered: August 28 – December 11, 2014 (15 weeks)
Thursdays: 9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Tuition: $500.00

Course Description:

This course will provide the participants with an historical perspective of psychotherapy as to the development of systems theory and its importance in helping to diagnose and treat families.

We will explore the shift from an individual psychology paradigm to a systemic/cybernetic paradigm. We will study the use of systems theory as an integrating framework for understanding the theories and models of family therapy.

We will review family-of-origin and the use of genograms in mapping family patterns. We will practice using the genogram as an assessment tool, as well as a therapeutic intervention. In addition to traditional genogramming, the participants will experiment in the use of the projective genogramming and its use in healing and growth.

We will review literature that conceptually links family systems theory and attachment theory and how they are complementary in nature.

Approved by the Georgia Composite Board for MFT Course required for licensure.
(45 hours - semester course)

Course Requirements: Participants must attend 80% of classes and must receive 80% or better on graded assignments and exams.

For additional information contact: Elaine Gibson, M.Ed, LPC, LMFT. Approved Supervisor, AAMFT. Director: The Marriage and Family Therapy Institute of The Link Counseling Center.
