This course is an integration of advanced assessment, diagnosis, and treatment procedures with couples, families, individuals, and groups. Emphasis will be on the following areas: (1) the advanced study of classic and emerging CFT models; (2) special topic areas (e.g., trauma, religious differences, grief & loss, family rituals,) and/or collaborative CFT in varied settings (e.g., schools, medical facilities, in-home/family preservation work, foster care, alcohol & drug centers); (3) development of a personal theory/philosophy of family therapy along with a case management system for that model. Additionally, development of the self of therapist, contributions to CFT as a profession, and employment as well as independent practice information including resume development, licensing laws and regulations in Maryland and other states will be explored. Also, procedures for preparing for the National MFT licensing exam will be discussed. Advanced professional practice will be demonstrated in case presentations related to the specific areas emphasized in the course.
