This course builds on the “Certificate in Foundational Systemic Thinking in Social Work and Clinical Practice” by bridging thinking to clinical and casework practice. It seeks to promote relational and collaborative practice that brings intentionality to the forth. This is closely connected with the “use of the self” as a main tool in practice, especially in the uncertain and risk environment that practice is operating from.
|This course enables Trainees to:
|Incorporate systemic thinking into practice through a more conversational approach to working with others.
|Deepen their self-reflexivity through examining their relational positioning and stance in the context of uncertainty and risks
21 Hours (3 weeks)
Trainees will attend lectures together with the Post Graduate Certificate in Systemic Thinking and Approaches (PGC-STA) as this course is its 2nd module. The course will be over 3 days and will cover the topics as shown below:
|1a. Reflexive practice (I): Domains of Action; 1b. Therapeutic practice: Interventive Interviewing (I)
|2a. Reflexive practice (II): Safe uncertainty and relational risk-taking; 2b. Therapeutic practice: Interventive Interviewing (II)
Teaching and Learning Strategies
Trainees will be engaged in the learning process with lectures, small group discussions led by an experienced team of Therapists from CCC, and experiential exercises.
We are planning for the course to be conducted in our premises. However, in the event that the pandemic worsens and that we are unable to, we will conduct the training online via the zoom platform. We will make these arrangements as soon as there is clarity about what is safe.
