Dates/Times TBA GPSA702B-K Small Group Studies (SGS)
This supervised group study course is taken throughout the summer for students who are engaged in fieldwork or clinical case. The students study individual cases at their Fieldwork Site in depth, presenting and reading about the dynamics of each case as well as their personal reactions to the client. The students process the challenges in working with and learning about serious psychopathology in a treatment relationship. The goal of the course is to help students identify the defenses of narcissistic clients and the countertransference reactions of the treating therapist. Students will present cases with process notes as a way to study the dynamics of the cases. Each week three students meet with the faculty and present their cases, studying the most therapeutic approach to each case.
