PSY-629A1 Practicum Case Seminar: Psychodynamic

2 semester credits
Each 2 unit PSY-629 term (term 1 is 629A1 and so on) is designed to complement the student’s clinical practicum experience. The primary goals of PSY-629 are: a) to provide depth exposure to one broad clinical theoretical orientation, including theoretical understanding, applied skill development, and related research and; b) to provide ongoing case consultation and supervision linked to the training the students are concurrently receiving at their practicum sites. The PSY-629A series focuses on developing a strong knowledge base in psychoanalytic theories and the application of psychodynamic theory and research to the practice of psychotherapy.
