Systemic Theory and Practice 2 - Level 7

About this module

This module reflects the professional nature of the pathway and is therefore seen as a key element in bringing the skills of critical analysis to professional practice.  It allows the you the opportunity to critically analyse the impact of applying systemic principles in practice. It gives you the opportunity to develop the ability to discuss systemic practice and theory in both oral and written forms.

You will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge of the philosophical positions that underpin research practice and evaluation, with emphasis on the methods by which theory is generated and data collected. Therefore, throughout this module the critical reading of research will be related to current and relevant issues in theory, psychotherapeutic practice and professional development.
