Level 3 Diploma in Family Counselling

Course Synopsis
This Quality Assured Level 3 Diploma course is designed to follow on from, and compliment the basic or introductory counselling course. Reappraisal of basic counselling skills and core knowledge will be covered, together with a detailed examination of the five approaches or theories counselling.

Family counselling has emerged and developed significantly since the 1950's, and is a collaboration of modernist, postmodernist and constructionist views. The two important developments within family counselling during the past 60 years has been the systemic formulation and integrative practices which links the theory and practical aspects. In addition to the counselling approaches, various working models and theories specific to this field will be explored as well as the following concepts: meta-communication, genograms, triangulation, open and closed systems, reframing, solution focused counselling, goal setting and reflective practice.

Specific attention will be given to psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and person-centred approaches, which will give students a fuller working knowledge and understanding of advanced counselling skills. In specialist counselling fields, these advanced skills are necessary in order to be able to recognise and deal with the complex range of client needs, together with being able to understand the origins of these particular emotions and possible physiological factors.

The course consists of 10 modules, each with an assignment to complete and a final online examination.

Module 1: Introduction, outline of family cycle and reappraisal of counselling skills
In this module the concept and definition of the family cycle and reflects on previous counselling knowledge will be outlined.

The work of Freud, Rogers, Skinner, Ellis, Jung and Eagan will be looked at in brief, and the corresponding counselling approaches examined.

Module 2: The psychodynamic approach relevant to family counselling
This module will look at how they work and are applied to the counselling situation. Specific examples and activities will give the student indications as to which particular set of client circumstances benefits most from this approach.
