The second part, “CFTC Therapy Observation,” is due May 10th. You will observe three live therapy sessions in the PLU Couple and Family Therapy Clinic during the course of the semester. It is recommended that you follow one case for all three required observed sessions. This allows you to understand the progression of a single case. This assignment will require you to spend time on campus observing therapy. Due to client cancellations and no-shows, plan extra weeks to complete the assignment. The purpose of this assignment is to apply the theoretical concepts discussed in class to actual client systems. You will receive more detailed information for scheduling therapy sessions in class. Please note: You are not to interact with clients, go into the therapy room, or give advice or share observations with the therapist. Be prepared to discuss experience and your clinical observation report in class on the day the report is due. Students will write a double-spaced 2 page report of the observations, using 12-point font, 1-inch margins, and including the following: 1) Briefly describe the client context, treatment goals, and who attended the sessions and their relationship to each other if more than one client is present. (2 pt) 2) What are the key course concepts that apply to this particular case? What do you notice “coming to life” from course material in the therapy room? Describe at least four main course concepts in this section.
