COUNSL 667 - Counseling Families and Couples: Theories and Practice

3 Credit(s)

The course reviews the application of systems thinking, the relevance of context and process, communication, change, and circular causality, to advance an understanding of couples, families, and organizations as living systems. This course addresses the purposive family therapy models, transgenerational, interactional, Milan systemic, brief strategic, and solution-focused models. It also explores original family and couples therapy applications: ecomaps, genograms, circular questions, to acquire a grounded understanding of systems thinking. The course also introduces students to work with individuals around family issues and work with couples.
