This three-day course will enhance your understanding of family therapy and family dynamics. It's offered in Cambridge and Chelmsford - or we can come to your site.
During our course, you'll learn how to structure a family intervention session and how to generate hope and recovery. There's a good mixture of theory and practice, and you'll have the opportunity to apply new techniques.
The overarching philosophy will be both recovery- and strengths-based approaches to working with individuals, couples and families and systemic techniques such as multiple hypothesising, circular questions, neutrality and finding a “fit” with the family’s world view. Working with the system while only interviewing one or two people from that system will be explored, since practically convening large family and system meetings is likely to be outside of the scope of most clinicians.
You will be taught how to work with the service user, their family and peers on identifying early warning signs and how these can be managed; empowering where relevant. You’ll also learn how to help the service user and family develop a contingency plan to address early warning signs.
This course will benefit all frontline staff working in healthcare or education who would like to learn more about family intervention, for example nursing teams, mental health teams, health visitors, teaching staff or school support staff.
This course can be run at our Chelmsford or Cambridge campuses, or delivered on your own site, from Spring 2017. Please email Mpowernet or call 01245 684355 for further details.
