The Family and Couples Treatment Service (FACTS) was established as a division of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in 1982. FACTS helps couples and families work through issues in communication and deal with the interpersonal difficulties in their lives. We also train professionals to develop competence in providing couples and family therapy.
Our two year program includes group supervision of clinical cases and academic presentations. We teach systems and structural theory and practice. We study attachment theory, EFT, neuroscience, trauma theory, mindfulness and internal family systems approaches. Our work affirms ICP’s commitment to honoring cultural and sexual diversity in treatment and training.
A certificate of completion of FACTS’ Two-Year Training Program is given when candidates fulfill the following requirements:
– Two years of didactic training in subject areas pertaining to couples and family therapy
– Demonstration of clinical competence in providing couples and/or family therapy
– Completion of a Case Study demonstrating integration of clinical and theoretical perspectives relevant to a treatment provided by trainee to a FACTS couple or family
– Trainees are required to videotape at least one family or couple session to share in group supervision for the purpose of deepening the exploration of clinical and theoretical issues relevant to couples and/or family treatment.
Candidates have access to a wide range of CEU approved webinars, workshops and conferences offered by each of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy’s divisions.
