Competency Area: Intervention
Required of and restricted to Year I students who took PYC 700 Psychotherapeutic Intervention I.

This is the second part of the yearlong course on 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 durations. Emphasis is on psychodynamic, cognitive and systemic thinking, and selected clinical practice and process issues are considered across a variety of psychological disorders. Issues such as the therapist’s role, factors in change, gender effects, and treatment duration and flexibility are evaluated. Methods include readings, discussions, student and instructor presentations, sharing of relevant personal and professional experience, and skill practice. (Section assignments will be made by the department and provided to students prior to registration.)
