When: Mondays (twice a month)
Time: 10:00 – 16:00
Length: September-June, 18 teaching days.
The Course commences in late September and is accredited as a foundation level course by the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (AFT). It is the only one of its kind in the country.
Participants must have experience of working with children, and be currently working with children in a family context to be eligible to apply. They should also have an appropriate professional training or equivalent, such as social work, nursing, psychiatry or clinical psychology.
The course on its own does not aim to train participants to become therapists, but to enable them to incorporate systemic ideas and techniques into the participants’ professional practice. It is aimed at those working with children in a wide range of contexts.
It forms the foundation year of the Institute’s four year clinical training programme.
