GPSA 701 Fieldwork Seminar Clinical Interviewing: Early Interventions & Small Group Studies (SGS)-3cr
Wednesday, 7:10 – 9:30 pm /Vaccaro (main)
This course is designed for students that are approved for fieldwork. The Fieldwork experience provides an opportunity to study basic psychoanalytic counseling techniques and their application to clinical settings. In this first Fieldwork segment, students are assisted in obtaining a Fieldwork placement, given early interviewing classroom practice in the initial encounters, and encouraged to begin studying the counseling/therapeutic process as they learn to recognize the various forms of psychopathology. They learn interviewing techniques to enable individuals to tolerate more comfortably the stimulation of the counseling/therapeutic experiences, and that allow them to more freely talk with the counseling professional. The importance of ethical issues will be examined throughout the course.
