Psycho-Social Development And Family Systems Theory: We Are A Reflection Of Our Family
About This NYSED Social Work Board Approved Workshop (4-CEUs)
NYSED Social Work Board Approved Certificate will be awarded upon completing both sessions. Psycho-Social Development and Family Systems Theory provides a framework for understanding human behavior in the context of the social environment and family systems. Participants will explore how psychological and social content shape the human experience. Erik Erikson’s Psycho-Social Stages of Development Theory will be reviewed as a framework for practitioners to understand the role of early relationships, culture, age, in personality development across the life-span. From an Eriksonian perspective, emphasis will be placed on how core childhood stages influence the foundation of adult personality. Murray Bowen’s (Bowenian) Family Systems Theory will be offered as a model for understanding the family emotional system. Participants will learn how to apply these theories in the context of providing clinical treatment and concrete social services to children and families.
