Emphasis on integrating theory with contemporary systemic practice relevant to the student’s workplace; experienced and approachable teachers who are also  practitioners; courses that are grounded in theory but crafted in connection with the realities of workplace practice; emphasis on experiential learning, including live supervision with real families as you advance in your studies – these are just some of the things that make The Bouverie Centre a great place to do postgraduate study!


Direct your own learning

Interested in expanding your family work skills but unsure about becoming a family therapist? You can exit after only year one of study and receive a qualification or
progress to more advanced study.

Build on your existing expertise

Our students come to us with valuable knowledge and skills gained from previous educational, work and personal experiences. You’ll be encouraged to consider how the information being presented or the task you are being asked to complete fits with what you already know.

Make an immediate difference to your clients and their families

You’ll be assisted to apply new concepts and skills to your current work context, even if you are working with individuals and couples. Our teaching staff are experienced clinicians engaged in practice and familiar with the particular requirements of various professional contexts. They are thus able to support you in translating concepts and skills into your own workplace.

Learn by doing

In addition to teaching theory, it is our hands on, practical orientation that is consistently rated as both the most challenging and educative aspects of our approach. You will refine your skills and knowledge by participating in discussions, sharing your experiences, analysing cases, role playing and engaging in other interactive learning activities. Some of our subjects offer live supervision with real families from our Centre using a reflecting team process.

Comprehensive feedback

You can expect timely feedback and guidance on your performance, as well as have opportunities to provide us with regular updates on how you are experiencing the
course and understanding the material.
