Specialist Course in Couple Therapy
February 4 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm$5000
This renowned Specialist Course in Couple Therapy is now in its 30th year. It is open to counsellors and psychologists wanting to develop rigorous knowledge and specialist skills in working with couples.
The course uses an integrative therapeutic approach, which is strongly grounded in evidence-based models and contemporary practice. It equips participants to respond flexibly to couples’ particular needs, world views and situations.
Recognising the limitations inherent in a single theoretical model, the course provides participants with training in a range of theories and practices.
Theories and modalities covered include Attachment Theory, Psycho-dynamic, Systemic and Integrated Behavioural theories, Emotionally-Focused Therapy and neurobiological-informed practice. The course incorporates research findings by Gottman and considers emerging ideas and practice trends.
A ‘Therapeutic Self’ module enhances participants’ understanding of what shapes them as therapists, enabling them to remain reflective in what is often an emotionally charged field. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have developed specialist knowledge and skills to assist couples experiencing a range of difficult issues.
The stand-alone course is delivered one day a week for five months, with the option of completing an additional supervised internship at a RAV centre.
The course is also an accredited component of the Swinburne University Master of Social Science (Couple Counselling) at the second year level.
The course is offered through and based at the Kew Centre of Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV), which is a service-delivery centre. The SCCT is not delivered through RAV’s Training and Development Department.
