Restricted to Year III and Year IV students.
Restricted to Year IV students from July 15 – 22; open to Year III students July 23.

This is a skills-based seminar where students learn to combine different theoretical orientations and therapy techniques to provide maximally effective help. While based on theoretical and research literature, the focus is on the development of therapy integration skills. Integrative techniques will be drawn from the cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, psychophysiological, and spiritual conceptualizations of emotional recovery. Clinical areas to be covered include depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, and borderline personality disorder.
