Foundations of Family Therapy

Youth with significant behavior problems, like school refusal, aggression, gang involvement or other forms of delinquency, pose a significant challenge to their families and their community. Not only is incarceration expensive, but recidivism rates for youth who are placed in locked residential facilities are soaring. Further, efforts to use community-based therapeutic interventions to change the beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors of these youth have mixed results in the long run. There is considerable evidence, however, that family interventions can make a significant impact on these behavior problems by focusing on the family system of the youth as a whole instead of focusing solely on the youth as an individual. In this course, you will learn the basics about systems theory and family therapy, as well as some of the specific assessment and intervention approaches used in brief models of Structural and Strategic Family Therapy. You also will learn about the Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT™) model, which has been shown to be extremely effective in decreasing conduct problems in youth. Through a series of interactive exercises and mini-quizzes, you will have a chance to practice and reinforce concepts you learn throughout this course.
