Don’t Keep it ALL in the Family
The family is the most important structure in our lives. From the moment we are born we learn the rules and values of family and learn to adapt to them. As we grow, the family becomes central to a wider network of social and cultural structures.
Is it any wonder that the family is also the place where many problems begin? Given the strength of family bonds, problems within the family unit make for a difficult ‘nut to crack’. Family counselling is not a new concept but what is new is a course in family counselling now being offered by ACS Distance Education. This fascinating course introduces the student to family dynamics, historical perspectives, support structures, different approaches to family therapy, and ultimately counselling solutions. It can be studied as an individual module for personal interest or professional development, or as part of a higher level qualification.
