CL 801 and 802: Case Conference V and VI

This continuation of ICSW’s case conference series expands clinical skills and fosters the development of psychodynamic thinking.  Emphasis is on the therapists’ self-awareness as the primary tool for conducting a psychodynamic assessment and engaging in psychotherapy. Using core concepts of transference, countertransference, projective identification, and various other defenses, we will attempt to understand the dynamics of the patient and therapist as they work together.  These theoretical concepts will aide in our theoretical formulations and treatment process. Prerequisites: CL 602; CF 612; CF 622; CL 611; CL 612
