This unit will develop student's systemic formulation and therapy skills. Case presentations and simulation will be used to assist students to think and work in a systemic fashion, employing key therapeutic techniques recommended within the structural, strategic, systemic and solution-focussed schools of family therapy. At the conclusion of the unit, students should be able to write a systemic formulation, conduct a family assessment, write a family focussed treatment plan and engage a family in therapy. Challenges associated with systemic therapy such as conflict, trauma and termination of treatment will also be addressed.
