Scholarships available, see Fees & Funding section for more information. Our Family Therapy Grad Cert course enables mental health professionals to develop useful theoretical knowledge and practice skills to enable them to work effectively with couples and families in the context of their own professional practice. The focus of the course is in working in mental health settings, and the teaching draws from a range of different approaches. This integrative approach ensures that students have a solid grounding which enables them to adapt their practice to different client groups. At the end of the course students will have gained confidence in working with more than one person in the room and be able to use a number of approaches to help people towards positive change. There is a focus on evidence-based practice and on the development of good therapeutic relationships.

Key benefits
