Module overview

Systemic therapies approach people and their problems, not as isolated individual units, but as people in relationships who are influenced by the interactions and dynamics within the group be it a family or a larger organisation such as an employer. This module in combination with module 2, has been designed to offer teaching that is equivalent to the first year of the Systemic Psychotherapy Foundation training (AFT, 2007). Systemic theory and practice is the programmes second therapeutic model in line with guidance from the British Psychological Society that by the end of the programme Trainees will have the “ability to implement therapeutic interventions based on knowledge and practice in at least two evidence-based models of formal psychological interventions…” (BPS, 2015, p23 – 2.2.4 Psychological Intervention Core Competency, point 3).
