Coun 577 Family Therapy

This course will provide an overview of family therapy, particularly related to parent-child relationships. Families will be understood from practical, structural, intergenerational, cultural, developmental, topical, and process perspectives. A foundation in family therapy theory is a prerequisite for this course; the emphasis here will be on application of theory and the development of family therapy skills. Experiential learning (role plays) will occur during class, with participation required from all students.
