Systemic Family Therapy

The MSc in Systemic Family Therapy is a part-time course over 24 months that is an accredited Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice course. Successful completion of the course makes graduates eligible to register with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The course is appropriate for a wide range of mental health professionals: psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, teachers and counsellors. The use of systemic family therapy for treatment of psychological difficulties is increasingly represented in NICE Guidelines and this is attended to in the course. It is designed for people who wish to work in the NHS as well as for people who seek employment in other agencies or independent practice. The Leeds Family Therapy and Research Centre has been training therapists for over 20 years to help individuals, couples and families find ways of tackling their problems. This programme has been running since 1996. The MSc programme is preceded by the Foundation and the Intermediate level courses, so that people can have prior experience to determine whether the systemic approach suits them and their area of work.
