Overview

Family Therapy and Systemic Practice is an approach to understanding and changing human symptoms and problems that considers the inside and outside world of the person and the relationship between the two. It incorporates the wider system and inequalities due to gender, race, advantage and ability which shape lives and the underpin difficulties which present in therapy.
