Prerequisite: PY 642B, Foundational Theories of Marriage and Family Therapy

This course builds upon the Foundational Theories course by extending learning to postmodern approaches to Marriage and Family Therapy practice. Theoretical foundations of social constructionism and constructivism will be covered, leading into in-depth coverage of postmodern models of Marriage and Family Therapy, such as solution-focused, narrative, and language-systems-based approaches. Issues of social justice will be emphasized as a basis for critique of each model.
