Dates/Times TBA GPSA701B-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.
