This Certificate course aims to introduce foundational systemic ideas that would promote an appreciation/ understanding of people, families, support networks and systems, from a relational lens and developmental life cycle perspective.
Participants will be provided with an in-depth understanding of salient systemic concepts such as general systems theory, circularity, feedback loops, context (inclusive of wider social and cultural discourse) and appreciate how the family functions and organises itself during transitional points, that supports personal autonomy while maintaining togetherness.
|This course enables participants to:|
|1.||Be equipped with a holistic approach in understanding complex issues beyond the presenting symptoms that are manifested in individuals and families.|
|2.||Enhance participants with a deeper level of self-awareness and begin to develop greater self-reflexivity|
