The MSc in Family Therapy programme is designed for professionals working in a mental health setting (eg. nurses, GPs, paediatricians, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists), who wish to complete their training in family therapy. They will have already completed the first two years of Family Therapy training either at the IoP or on another Association for Family Therapy accredited course, and have significant clinical experience. The MSc qualifies professionals for registration with the UK Council for Psychotherapy as a family and systemic psychotherapist. The course is accredited by the Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice and the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
The programme offers a comprehensive clinical training in family therapy. You will undertake supervised clinical work with families in both adult and child mental health settings.
