Congratulations to Heather MacInthosh for being selected for the 2017 H. Noel Fieldhouse Award for Distinguished Teaching


Heather MacIntosh's award reflects her outstanding teaching in the Masters in Couple and Family Therapy, and in particular her integration of drama students from the department of English who play simulated couples and families. These simulations allow CFT students the opportunity to experience the full range of the treatment process from alliance building and assessment to intervention and termination. 

In turn, drama students have the opportunity to develop and evolve a character/patient, within a couple relationship with access to extensive supervision and feedback using scenarios dealing with complex issues such as sexual assault, childhood trauma, addictions, infidelity and chronic health problems.
