A paper by Amaryll Perlesz, Jenny Dwyer, Robyn Elliott, Banu Moloney, Colin Riess, Pam Rycroft, Ann Welfare and Jeff Young.

The Bouverie Centre at La Trobe University in Melbourne runs the longest established family therapy teaching program in Australia. ‘Bouverie’, as it is known, is highly regarded for its innovative teaching program, as well as its work in relation to HIV/AIDS, mental health, sexual abuse, acquired brain injury, and with homophobia in schools. This paper describes some of the current issues being faced and grappled with in therapy training programs both in Australia and elsewhere. We are delighted to include it here.
