SP 469 - Systems Theory and Practice

This course introduces students to the major models of systems theory and general systems theory as applied to schools (e.g., good behavior game) and families. Structural, communicative, analytic, and behavioral approaches to family therapy will be examined, as well as ethics, legal issues, and current research. An integrated, systemic perspective will be the contextual base of the course. (2 credits)
