This group supervision is for those practitioners who have had family therapy training and wish to continue maintaining their skills and confidence in working with families or for those who are interested in working systemically with a family sensitive lens with their clients.

“Family sensitive practice is the idea of being sensitive to families in a general way for people not necessarily training as family therapists but who are working with families.” (Amaryll Perlesz, Bouverie Centre, Melbourne).
