CERTIFICATE IN FOUNDATIONAL SYSTEMIC APPLICATIONS IN SOCIAL WORK AND CLINICAL PRACTICE

[CSA]

MODULE 2 OF POST GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN SYSTEMIC THINKING AND APPROACHES [PGC-STA]
UPCOMING INTAKE: 3 JULY – 17 JULY 2024 
Application Deadline: 17 MAY 2024

Introduction

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.

Objectives

This course enables Trainees to:
1. Incorporate systemic thinking into practice through a more conversational approach to working with others.
2. Deepen their self-reflexivity through examining their relational positioning and stance in the context of uncertainty and risks

Duration

21 Hours (3 weeks)
