Family Therapy Masterclass

Date: 6 May 2019 - 8 May 2019


The aim of this course is to equip therapists with core skills in family therapy assessment and intervention, drawing on the key theoretical and practical techniques established in this field over the past fifty years.

In this workshop Paul with ensure that participants walk away with a core set of skills in family therapy assessment and intervention, enabling them to get started working with families in their practice. These skills will be drawn from a variety of models, including systemic, structural, narrative and solution-focussed, integrated together to provide a map for on-going therapy. Specific skills will include systemic assessment using circular questions and relationship scanning, deviation amplifying, enactments and re-enactments and therapeutic letters. This course will be unique in that it will be primarily taught through demonstration, role play and practice. There will be no powerpoint presentations or didactic lectures, but rather engagement with real case material and dilemmas.

2. Apply these models to hypothesising, formulation and feedback regarding family presentations

3. Conduct systemic family assessments

4. Write therapeutic letters
