This course provides theoretical and practical foundations for the practice of family therapy, including an Adlerian foundation. In this course, the students will explore the development of family therapy, foundations for assessment of family problems, and the practical application of current methods for assessing and treating family problems. Readings, lectures, role-play, and sample assessments will be framed within a systemic context and grounded in the interactional dynamics of human relationships. Students will be exposed to a variety of interventions and begin the process of formulating an Adlerian-informed integrative model of family therapy.
