MFT 6811: Ethical Issues and Crisis Intervention (2018-2019)

View all MFT classes

This course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of assessment and intervention methods with individuals, couples, and families in crisis. The course provides initial preparation for student's placement in an internship site and is taken in conjunction with Clinical Practicum I (MFT 6933), focusing mainly on ethical issues and crisis interventions relevant to MFT clinicians and interns (e.g., harm to self and others). The theoretical foundation for this course is an integrated model of systems theories. Students will explore and discuss treatment applications within the contexts of relevant research, ethics, culture, community, and theoretical perspectives. Through class content, readings, presentations and exercises, students will build a foundation of knowledge and skills for assessment, treatment goals, and ethical interventions with clients.
