(5 credits)

This is an advanced course in the study and application of family systems theory. Students apply content knowledge gained in earlier courses 6201/6726 and other core courses to complex and comprehensive case studies. The case studies are rich and inclusive of current issues in family and couples counseling, such as the impact of technology, crisis intervention, addiction, school and community factors, ethical dilemmas, socio-cultural considerations, and issues related to social justice and advocacy. Students engage in the processes of clinical assessment, treatment planning, goal writing, care coordination, discharge planning, clinical documentation, ethical practice, and safety planning. Course work also cultivates students' case conceptualization and case presentation skills.
