Systemic therapy is an evidenced-based approach to family therapy, increasingly used in statutory services. More than just a method for working with families, it provides a hugely valuable way of working with individuals, couples, teams and inter-agency institutions.
Taught by systemic therapists and professionals from different service contexts, the course at Bath attracts many visiting lecturers, including prominent experts, authors and practitioners, keen to share their insights with you.
Our courses are grounded in reflexive and ethical ways of working, as well as providing the classic systemic texts and latest research outcomes that inform and shape the field.
We offer two systemic courses at the University of Bath:
- Foundation course in Systemic Theory and Practice
- Intermediate course in Systemic Theory and Practice
You will be able to access University of Bath resources and facilities, including a range of workshops to improve your academic skills.
You will leave the course with:
- a clear overview of the history of the development of systemic therapy to the present day
- an understanding of the different schools of systemic therapy, how they fit in historic and contemporary contexts, the theories and concepts that underpin them, and key therapeutic interventions championed by each approach
- awareness of the latest developments in the field
- an understanding of, and the ability to apply, systemic theory in your own work context
