The M.Sc. programme in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy is a very important programme in this vital field, which is gaining greater salience in the present times. The contemporary social scenario has resulted in an increased need and demand for support in terms of counselling and family therapy, which is being increasingly recognized as an effective approach both for promoting positives like strengthening family ties, fostering positive parenting, and increasing resilience of individuals in vulnerable situations, as well as for addressing negative aspects such as socio-psychological problems, maladaptive behaviours, declining mental health, and psychosomatic disorders that are being increasingly witnessed in the present times. However, though the need for counselling and family therapy support is being increasingly felt, there is a dearth of such support or a helping hand for promoting positive family processes and helping individual family members in distress in a comprehensive way. As a continuing education programme, this unique programme of study aims to help interested professionals and others enhance and promote the acquisition and fostering of the requisite knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills in the area of Counselling and Family Therapy.
A remarkable feature of this programme of study is its focus on the applied aspect and the thrust on opportunities for hands-on experience for the learner. In fact, almost half the credits of this Master’s Degree Programme are earmarked for application-oriented learning opportunities. In the second year of the programme, the learner has the option to choose Marital and Family Therapy and Counselling, Child and Adolescent Counselling and Family Therapy or Substance Abuse Counselling and Family Therapy. Yet another special feature of the programme is that it has a provision of exit point for learners (after successful completion of the first year courses) in the form of P.G. Diploma in Counselling and Family Therapy (PGDCFT). The programme has theory, supervised practicum, internship, and dissertation as components.
The programme of study is on offer in the July session only.
