Applying Psychodynamics In the Community:
Case presentations and discussions address the challenges of working in agencies, mental health clinics, group homes and schools. Presenters have extensive clinical experience in a wide variety of mental health settings.
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 | 5:00 to 7:00 PM
Each new encounter between a client or patient and clinician is packed with expectations and questions about what lies ahead. The therapist must juggle the multiple administrative guidelines of the clinic or agency while addressing how to engage each individual, how to recognize and work with countertransference reactions, how to begin to understand what each person wants or needs. This seminar uses beginning case material to explore how an understanding of psychodynamics and clinical technique enhances this crucial and delicate phase of treatment.
Continuing Education Objectives:
Participants will be able to:
- Identify and discuss multiple aspects of beginning treatment.
- Identify and discuss the challenges of addressing administrative and clinical expectations.
- Identify and discuss a variety of interventions from a psychodynamic perspective.
