This course can be useful for anyone working with or interested in families. For example, social workers, teachers, counsellors, volunteers, family workers, support workers, carers, health and well-being workers, educational staff, parents and foster parents. In fact, anyone who would like to help families in distress. You will focus on an area of counselling which is important for most counsellors to be familiar with. There are often times when all members of a family are affected by the behaviour of one member, or the family itself has become fragmented and non-functional. Students of this course will become familiar with different approaches to family counselling and a range of techniques they can be used in even their own family situations.
