The Queensland Institute of Family Therapy is proud to offer Key Skills in Family Therapy

This two-day workshop will provide participants with a solid introduction to Family Therapy language, concepts and systemic thinking as well as practical clinical skills that can be used immediately with individuals and families (children, adolescents, adults and older persons). Participants will understand how to identify and influence the interactions that keep families and the "symptomatic person" stuck in negative cycles, and how to use these ideas within a medical model setting.


Day One provides an introduction to Family Therapy key concepts, assessment tools and systemic hypothesising, with opportunities to apply skills learnt via video and practical exercises.  Day Two provides participants with practical skills and techniques from various schools of Family Therapy to use with clients and families, including systemic questions, use of genograms, and ideas for working with various subsystems.  


A booklet of information will be provided to the participants on the day and pre-readings and post-readings will also be provided to the participants.  Due to interactive and experiential nature of the workshop, this workshop is designed for a maximum of 20 participants only with one facilitator, or for a maximum of 50 participants with two facilitators.


This two-day workshop has been delivered to several government and non-government agencies and continues to consistently receive positive feedback with an appreciate of the integration of theory into practice.
