GPSA701E-G Small Group Studies (SGS)

Thursday, 2:30 – 4:00pm GPSA 702E SGS/ Vaccaro (Vaccaro office)


This supervised group study course is taken concurrently with Fieldwork Seminar (GPSA701). 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 in the therapy. 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 individuals 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 person and present their cases, studying the most therapeutic approach to each case. (Certificate or MA)
