School-Based Treatment

Tuesday, December 6, 2016 | 5:00 to 7:00 PM


Working with children in school settings involves the challenges of working within a host setting and system that includes teachers, administrators, parents and other students and professionals. Who is the patient? What are the goals? What does one do when there seem to be conflicting goals from different parties? This seminar uses case material to illustrate how an understanding of psychodynamics and clinical technique can inform and enhance this complicated therapeutic work.

Continuing Education Objectives:

The participant will be able to:

  1. Identify and discuss various challenges of clinical work in a host setting, such as a school.
  2. Discuss how to address clinical goals when there appear to be conflicting goals from different parties.
  3. List psychodynamic understanding and techniques that could be used in your clinical work in schools.
