ALVEAR MENDOZA, María Loreto; JEREZ BEZZENBERGER, Rocio Macarena and LUCERO CHENEVARD, Claudia. Therapists training in systemic family therapy specialization program. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.2, pp.183-193. ISSN 1413-7372. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722012000200002.
The objective was to build a theoretical description that explains how therapists in the Specialization Program in Systemic Family Therapy at the University of La Frontera, become Systemic Family Therapists. The research used qualitative methodology, using grounded theory and focused interview technique. The population corresponded to the various actors involved in the process, considering as part of it, both trained therapists in training, trainers and supervisors. It is proposed that training is ongoing, powered by a training system that emerges in the program. This study aims to contribute to the knowledge of the training of therapists, as well as academic areas, particularly systemic training programs.
