Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) In Clinical Psychology Program
CLINICAL PRACTICE OF PSYCHODYNAMIC THERAPY
This course will use a comparative theoretical framework to explore the basic differences among the drive-conflict, developmental-deficit, and relational-conflict theories. Advanced psychodynamic topics, such as projective identification, mutuality, authenticity, inter-subjectivity, and the expressive use of counter-transference, will be explored. Furthermore, specific clinical issues will be discussed from a psychodynamic perspective, including narcissism, trauma, and eating disorders. Students will be encouraged to apply these ideas to their own work and to bring case examples into class discussion.
Prerequisite: CLI PT700.
