About this training:

In this self-paced online training, Dr. Brendan O’Hanlon, a leading developer and proponent of SSFC, provides a clearly articulated practical process for engaging families, ideally suited to contexts where a family member is the primary client of an individually oriented service (e.g. adult mental health, alcohol and other drugs, youth services).

SSFC offers timely, accessible support to all family members while retaining a strong client-practitioner relationship. In keeping with Single Session thinking it enables practitioners to make the most of each encounter with families.

Listen to Dr. Brendan O’Hanlon discuss this course and discuss how it provides solid grounding in the practice frame of SSFC.

 

Course structure

This course is made up of five modules and includes reflective questions, videos and quizzes.

Module 1: Introducing SSFC – Describe the rationale and practice principles underpinning SSFC, and its place within a comprehensive response to families.

Module 2: Foundations of SSFC – Unpack the conceptual and practical contributions of Single Session Thinking and Family Consultation to the model.

Module 3: Convening SSFC – Outline and consideration of key tasks in convening an SSFC.
