Systemic Case Conceptualization

CE Hours: 1.5  –  Cost: $18  –  
Instructor: C. Wayne Jones, PhD

An effective case conceptualization tells a story that pulls everyone together, energized to work toward a common, mutually agreed-upon goal. This course demonstrates how to do this using systems theory and the techniques of ESFT.  This course provides a rubric for developing meaningful systemic cases conceptualizations that tell a story. Multiple case examples are provided to help therapists distinguish between case conceptualizations that are systemic and those that are not.
