ROLDAN HENAO, Marta Cecilia; CASTANO MONTOYA, Sandra Helena  and  SCHNITTER CASTELLANOS, Mónica. Entrenamiento en configuraciones vinculares de familia y pareja bajo la modalidad terapeuta-coterapeuta. Pensam. psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.10, n.1, pp.63-75. ISSN 1657-8961.

Objective. The purpose of this study was to design a therapist - co-therapist training model, and to introduce undergraduate Psychology students to the practice of family and couples therapy and to broaden their perspective and reasoning from an individual to a relational reading of psychosocial processes. The study followed a research/intervention model. Method. The methodology was clinical and action-oriented, following an experiential approach. Two therapists coordinated the training workshops with 6 senior Psychology students. Initially a collaborative seminar was formed to study and discuss the theoretical concepts of family and couples therapy and to explore and analyze the participants' own genealogy and family tree structure. Gradually, the group became a clinical team and therapist - co-therapist pairs started diagnostic and intervention procedures. Results. Experiences through the implementation of a pilot model for introducing and training Psychology students to work with families and couples were gathered, so that these could be systematized by the program. Data from therapy sessions and staff meetings were recorded and analyzed through qualitative procedures. Conclusion. As a product of the implementation of this pilot model, the perspective of the undergraduate Psychology students was broadened from an individual (intrapsychic) focus to a group (interpersonal), family, or couples focus. The findings demonstrate how the co-construction of knowledge is derived from group work, and the need to implement other training models for the training of students in psychological reasoning for professional practice.
