in Systemic Family Therapy
AAFT Accredited Program
Next cohort starts July 2024
The Queensland Institute of Family Therapy is dedicated to providing Professionals with Industry recognized training options.
In line with contemporary practice, the Queensland Institute of Family Therapy (QIFT) provides professionals with opportunities to learn and experience multiple systemic ways of working with clients and families.
This philosophy is based on integrative practice principles that appreciates the significant contribution of different Family Therapy models across time.
The two-year Advanced Certificate in Systemic Family Therapy is post-graduate clinical training and offers a unique opportunity to develop the capacity to use Systemic Family Therapy and Systemic Practice knowledge, principles, and skills in therapeutic interventions in a wide range of settings with families, couples, individuals (Children, Adolescents, Adults) as well as with the provision of Supervision, and in supporting Team and Organisational functioning.
In this program, participants will get a thorough grounding in Systems Theory in order to develop their ability to 'think systemically’, develop knowledge and skills in a variety of First and Second Generation schools of Family Therapy, and explicitly link theory to practice.
The program will also focus on Contemporary Practice including Third Generation ideas that encompass evidence-based Family Therapy models and integration of systemic principles with neuroscience; and integration of different approaches within a Systemic Framework in order to provide effective, individualized interventions.
This program has a large experiential component including experiential workshops, live supervision in applied practice days, and advanced workshops, as well as a structured reading group and as such is open to both local and distance students.
