Models of Family-Centred Practice: Critical Perspectives (12 points)


Leader: Karen Crinall and Barbara Fraser

Gippsland Second semester 2004 (OCL)

Synopsis: This unit provides a close study of the mainstream, contemporary and emerging appoaches to practice in family therapy that inform family-centred practice in social welfare and human services. It introduces students to three main approaches, selected for their impact on the field, their empirical support and their recognition of issues of social justice, power and gender relations in their application. The unit explores the conceptual origins of each approach, its contemporary applications, and the beliefs and values from which practitoners operate. This unit also emphasises the development of practice skills at the beginning level of competence in each of the three approaches.

Assessment: Literature review (2000 words): 30% + Videotape of an interview (30 minutes) and Report (1000 words): 20% + Project (4500 words): 50%
