Students review and critique, from theological,
spiritual, and theoretical perspectives, the major foundational approaches to
family therapy. Applications of techniques from these approaches are practiced
in class. Students also examine the place of marriage and family therapy in
pastoral care and begin to articulate their own approach to working with
families. San Diego only. Four hours.
This lab affords students the opportunity to develop some comfort and competence using the clinical skills and interventions that are associated with the MFT theories being studied in MF504 Theories of Marital Family Therapy I. Students watch videos of therapy sessions and participate in, observe, and critique role plays that stimulate the primary learning experiences. Students must enroll in MF504L concurrently with MF504. San Diego only. One hour.
