COUN 6356 - Theories and Techniques in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling♦


(5 cr.) In this course, students are provided with the opportunity to gain an advanced understanding of theories and techniques for working with couples, marriages, and families as well as to acquire skills for theory integration and theory-based treatment. Through video demonstrations and other topical materials, students witness and examine empirically supported treatments and techniques in prevention, intervention, development, and promoting the well-being of marriages, couples, and families. They explore systemic implications for conceptualization, assessment, treatment planning, and interventions. Students also learn how to assess procedures for critically evaluating relevant research and how to apply these findings to their counseling practices. Additionally, they explore methods of adapting models to meet the needs of a diverse society and the legal and ethical issues related to working in this specialty area.
