Course summary

About the course

Critical and reflective examination of systemic theory is at the heart of this course, and you will also focus on the application of a systemic framework to practice and research.

You study different approaches to therapeutic work across a range of subjects and client groups, including adult mental health, individuals, couples, children and families.

You will also sharpen your own critical responses to discourses relating to power, difference and diversity, and develop the skills needed to address issues of discrimination.

This course is delivered in partnership with the Institute of Family Therapy in London.

Intermediate qualifications available:

  • Postgraduate diploma – 120 credits at Masters level

Why choose this course?

The Research component of the course encourages independent learning, providing you with an opportunity to develop your own professional practice interests in initiating and taking responsibility for a research project and dissertation, contributing to the development of knowledge within the systemic field. The course aims to help you develop your work with families and couples, to increase and consolidate your theoretical and clinical skills and your understanding of the use of the self in practice. The inclusion of a wide range of approaches is an important characteristic. It is part of the course philosophy to encourage you in the development of a critical approach to theory and practice examining the inequalities and differences for example of race, class, gender, and to encourage an ethical and anti-discriminatory approach to clients. Use of self and self-reflexive practice is a core aspect of training.

How will I be assessed?

The course employs a range of assessment strategies enabling you to demonstrate how you meet the learning outcomes of the course, drawing on a range of strengths, including verbal and written presentation skills and clinical practice. The Critical Analysis and the Research Proposal in Research Methods provide an opportunity for you to develop and refine the skills you will need for your Research Dissertation in Year 2, while other parts of the course will contribute to the knowledge and skills base that will support you in your research enterprise.
