SOCW 5369. SEMINAR IN FAMILY THERAPY. 3 Hours.
SOCW 5369 aims to compare various approaches to working with the family as a total system; enhance cognitive understanding of similarities and differences in theory and goals of family treatment in many fields of practice; and integrate strategies and techniques of each method into an individual style of therapy. Additionally, in recognition of power structures that have silenced indigenous and minority voices in assessing and treating families, this course will assign readings from diverse authors, as well as encourage student discussion and assignments in an activist-oriented classroom environment that seeks to understand how social work benefits from and perpetuates colonialism. Prerequisite: SOCW 5311.
