Introduction to Systemic and Family Psychotherapy Training: working with couples, families and wider systems


Due to the uncertainty from CoronaVirus and it’s effects sadly we have had to cancel this foundation level course in systemic and family practice. We will post information if and when that situation changes. Thank you for your interest in the course. We hope to offer webinars in systemic practice instead and will post details as the online offerings are ready.

As a stand alone course , this will equip practitioners to deepen their knowledge and skills in applying systemic thinking to working with individuals, couples and families and also to interagency working. Successful completion of this course provides the first and prerequisite training  towards qualifying in systemic and family psychotherapy and registration with the UKCP .

27,28,29,30 April 2020 (Mon to Thurs)

1,2,3,4, June 2020        (Mon to Thurs)
