Required of and restricted to Year I students.
(Section assignments will be made by the department and provided to students prior to registration.)

This is the first part of a year-long course in psychotherapeutic intervention in both theory and practice with individual adults, families, and children. The goal is to develop a flexible, integrated style of conducting treatment, focusing on brief to mid-range treatments. Emphasis is on psychodynamic, cognitive, and systemic thinking. Selected clinical practice and process issues are considered across a variety of psychological disorders, including the therapist?s role, factors in change, diversity, gender effects, empirically supported therapies, and intervention duration and flexibility. Methods comprise readings, discussions, student and instructor presentations, sharing of relevant personal and professional experience, and skill practice.
