Introduction to working systemically
with couples and families

Who is it for?

Relationships Australia NSW run a two-day workshop aimed at anyone in the helping professions who is interested in working therapeutically with couples and families.

You may be a counsellor with experience of working with individuals, looking to understand how the couple/family dynamic differs from a one to one setting; or you may be a GP who wants to learn new skills to relate empathically to families in your practice. Other professionals who might benefit from this workshop include psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, teachers, mental health nurses and juvenile justice workers.

What will it be like?

This workshop will introduce you to the foundational concept of systemic practice required to work with couples and families where ‘the relationships’ are the therapeutic focus.
The two days involve a mix of teaching, demonstrations and role plays in which participants have the opportunity try out new skills in a safe learning environment.

Important course information

This two day course is a useful introduction and will assist individuals working with couples and families. If you are thinking of becoming a relationship counsellor, this two day workshop could help you decide which would be an appropriate further study pathway to qualify to work in this field. This two day workshop does not qualify you to counsel couples and families.
