Family Dynamics and Counseling Approaches

The course introduces students to a psycho-spiritual approach for helping families challenged by the issues of adjusting to change brought about by normative developmental transitions as well as by situational crises. Using the basic framework of family systems theory, the course surveys the major therapeutic methods of assessment and intervention as applied in the Philippine context. Various learning approaches are directed at training students to become sensitive to the socio-cultural influences on family dynamics and to adopt multiple perspectives in identifying pastoral opportunities and resources for caring and growth. Particular emphasis will be given to applying learning to the trainee’s own family, seen as a foundational task in the development of the person of the pastoral family counselor.
