This Quality Assured, Level 3 Diploma in Family Counselling, is aimed at providing those with counselling experience and/or introductory qualifications, with a review of the fundamentals of counselling, while gaining specialist knowledge and application of counselling in family therapy.

The course will cover the five key perspectives of counselling skills that underpin the fundamental basis for all counselling. This theoretical foundation will form the basis for, exploring how strong families can be a source of support; care and protection. But, equally largely due to the development of new and variant typography; the family structure no longer seen as a ‘one model fits all’ as diversity now allows for: singleness and parenthood; same sex relationships and being parents and, the failure of parental relationships and the causal affect on childhood. At the other end of the age scale, elderly parents are frequently the norm in families, whereby caring and protection reverses the parent, child roles.

In the 21st century, the modern family is more prone to a greater impact of stresses upon the once tightly confined relationship, as ways are explored in ensuring good wholesome relationships are enabled and maintained. Therefore, the development of counselling skills that are used in ‘family therapy’ is changing. This course will explore these changes in the light of sometimes conflicting principles, theories and best practice; as relationship counselling continues to evolve.

The foundation of all good counselling practice begins with understanding the basic principles of theory; practices and case study models that provide that core of good skills any counsellor in this specialist area of family therapy seeks to maintain. Within this framework of theory and practice we will consider in the use of the following concepts: meta-communication, genograms, triangulation, open and closed systems, reframing, solution focused counselling, goal setting and reflective practice.
