Systemic Practice (Intermediate)

The Intermediate Course in Family Therapy builds on the knowledge and use of theory and practice in systemic family therapy achieved on the Foundation level course. It concentrates on the development of your therapeutic skills with families, couples and individuals and the application of systemic ideas in your work contexts. It is delivered through a combination of lectures and practical teaching, followed by theory and application discussions and skills practice in small groups facilitated by qualified family therapists. The course is available as a stand-alone module or as part of the Postgraduate Certificate in Systemic Practice. The course is multi-disciplinary and covers aspects of working with families in clinical settings, as well as wider applications of systemic thinking and practice. It is suitable for professionals working in psychology, nursing, psychiatry, social work, counselling, voluntary organisations and related fields who have completed Foundation level training in Systemic Practice or equivalent.

Entry requirements

Applicants must have the opportunity to complete at least 60 hours of systemic practice in the second year of the programme and must therefore be working in a health or social care setting where this is supported. IELTS 7.0 overall, with no less than 6.5 in any component.
