APSY-GE 2684: Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling

This course is a theory and practice approach, viewing the couple or the family as a unitary psychosocial system, focusing on general functioning, dysfunction, and intervention. In contrast to viewing individuals as the locus of a problem, the relationship is seen as a unitary system where harmony and difficulty depend on characteristics of the unit as a whole. Major areas covered include history, theory, practice models, and intervention techniques.
