Use of Self: Dealing with Conflict in Work with Families – Postponed – We will provide an updated course listing as soon as possible.
Monday, March 16, 8:30-10:30am
Conflicts in families are a frequent presenting issue that requires the worker to use one’s self effectively and knowledgeably. This course will focus on intervening with families experiencing conflicts; helping resolve conflicts as the worker enters the family system as a role model and facilitator of the interactions among the family members.

The theory, techniques and applications of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Systems, Psychodynamic and Humanistic approaches to treatment will be described.
