About Couple and Family Therapy:
Couple and Family Therapies mark a departure from the traditional individualistic therapeutic understanding of mental health and adopt a systemic framework of viewing relationships. Couple and Family therapies emerged simultaneously in the 1950s in a variety of different countries, and within a variety of different movements, disciplines, therapeutic and research traditions.
The basic premise of these therapies is that human problems are essentially interpersonal not intrapersonal; and therefore their resolution requires an approach to intervention that directly addresses relationships amongst people.
The proposed course equips the participants with a theoretical understanding of the nature of difficulties faced by couples and families, ways of assessing and conceptualising the same and with methods of applying this knowledge to intervene with couples and families.
You can apply for the course if you have:
- Completed Masters in Psychology or Masters in Social Work from a recognised University
