COUN 512 Systemic Theory: Marriage, Couple and Family Counseling

This graduate-level course introduces systemic thinking and a variety of Family Therapy theories and interventions. The course has two overarching objectives. First, students develop self-awareness into their own family-of-origin. Second, students explore the history of Family Therapy (Bowen, Strategic, Structural), the Feminist Critique, Post-Modern Theories, Neurobiological Research, and key family/social dynamics of the Twenty-First Century. Methods of instruction primarily feature in-class face-to-face learning, with some additional asynchronous online work.
