GPSA 555A Proposal Writing: Professional Ethics & the Psychoanalytic Case Study Seminar (3 Credits – companion of 555B but not sequential)

GPSA 555A Research Seminar – Proposal Writing/Gerber/To be Arranged


In this companion course to 555B, students will learn how to develop a proposal for or to work on the culminating psychoanalytic case paper in the Certificate program. Students will prepare a narrative of the case dynamics which describes the course of treatment and presents a question about some aspect of the case that puzzles or interests the student; show how the therapist listens in order to form an impression of the individuals emotional experience; write a review of the clinical literature that relates to the research question; and analyze what they have learned when applying further knowledge to case process recordings. This course meets the requirements for the Proposal Writing course as a prerequisite for the capstone tutorial sequence.

*Students must submit a request to the training committee for permission to enroll in this course.
