This course is an introduction to a generalist approach to intervention with families. In this course, students will learn about the family work approach and related skills including engagement, assessment, intervention and termination. Intervention with individuals will be contrasted with a family systems approach which views human behaviours as expressions of family interactions, dynamics and structures. Family dynamics will be explored as factors in the development and maintenance of various types of problems that present for professional help.
