Overview

Using state-of-the-art learning methods, THEORY AND TREATMENT PLANNING IN FAMILY THERAPY: A COMPETENCY-BASED APPROACH correlates with national standards for measuring student learning in mental health professions, including counseling, family therapy, psychology, and social work. A learning-centered, outcomes-based pedagogy engages students in an active learning process and introduces family therapy using theory-specific cases and treatment planning. Assignments empower students to apply theoretical concepts and develop real-world skills as early in training as possible. Extensive discussions review how diversity issues and research inform family therapy. Extensive instructor support includes scoring rubrics for accreditation assessment.
