Introduction to working systemically
with couples and families

Who is it for?

Therapists, counsellors, psychologists and social workers, caseworkers and other health and welfare professionals are increasingly working with children, families and couples to provide therapeutic programs and interventions. This occurs not only in counselling rooms but more often within homes, schools and other community settings.

Relationships Australia has provided clinical training in NSW for over 40 years.  Our highly regarded two-day workshop, Introduction to Working Systemically with Couples and Families will showcase a range of critical skills and approaches that will equip professionals to be able to think and intervene systemically.

What will it be like?

The two days involve a mix of teaching, demonstrations, role plays and skills practice in which participants have the opportunity try out new skills and strategies in a safe learning environment. The course will enrich participants’ current context and practice but also serves as an introduction to RANSW clinical courses including the Graduate Diploma in Relationship Counselling.

Important course information

Drawing on a range of models and ideas, the two day workshop will introduce participants to:

  • Working with clients in the context of their family or couple relationships;
  • Providing therapy with more than one person in the room;
  • Exploring clients’ concerns by using questions;
  • Using a relationship focus in their practice;
  • Considering how to be ‘therapeutic’ in different contexts;
  • Conceptualising clients’ concerns using a systemic lens; and
  • Understanding the place of the therapist in the family system.
