 Coming to grips with family systems theory in a collaborative learning environment.

The goal of all our training programs is:
“To teach and apply family systems theory as developed by Dr Murray Bowen and consolidated by ongoing scholarship and research. To assist people to be researchers of themselves in their relationships as well as to provide a forum where professionals can collaborate, grapple and develop systems thinking.”   Lily Mailler, faculty 

All our training groups allow for experiential learning. Groups and workshops are kept to a size that maximises collaboration. Our larger meetings allow for plenty of Q & A and smaller break out group discussions. participants are provided with a range of  home learning resources to consolidate their learning.
