The Bouverie Centre’s Family Therapy Training Certificate program is taught alongside the Graduate Certificate in Family Therapy, with students required to attend fifteen sessions of the Graduate Certificate, including the Community Forum, but complete class-based assessments only. Students will receive a detailed Certificate of Completion from the Bouverie Centre, La Trobe University that outlines sessions attended and skills gained.
