Series: Applying Psychodynamics in Mental Health Settings
1. Beginning Treatment
Tuesday October 18, 2016 5:00-7:00 PM
Each new encounter between a client or patient and clinician is packed with expectations and questions about what lies ahead. The therapist must juggle the multiple administrative guidelines of the clinic or agency while addressing how to engage each individual, how to recognize and work with countertransference reactions, how to begin to understand what each person wants or needs. This seminar uses beginning case material to explore how an understanding of psychodynamics and clinical technique enhances this crucial and delicate phase of treatment.
Participants will be able to:
1.Identify and discuss multiple aspects of beginning treatment.
2.Identify and discuss the challenges of addressing administrative and clinical expectations.
3.Identify and discuss a variety of interventions from a psychodynamic perspective.
Sara Hueso, LMHC, Psya.D., BGSP Faculty
2. Home-Based Therapy
Tuesday November 16, 2016 5:00-7:00 PM
Home-based therapy is an increasingly utilized treatment of choice in many agencies, especially those serving hard to reach populations. Entering the client’s space introduces many boundary and clinical questions, as well as possible safety issues. This seminar uses home-based case material to explore how an understanding of psychodynamics and clinical technique can inform this particularly challenging treatment modality.
Participants will be able to:
1.Describe home based therapy and its origins, benefits and challenges.
2.Identify and discuss boundary issues that occur in home-based therapy and how they might be addressed from a psychodynamic perspective.
3.Identify and discuss possible countertransference issues that might occur with home-based therapy and how these might be addressed.
Vincent Panetta, Ph.D., Cert.Psya., BGSP Faculty, Director of School & Home-Based Therapy Services
3. School-Based Treatment
Tuesday December 6, 2016 5:00-7:00 PM
Working with children in school settings involves the challenges of working within a host setting and system that includes teachers, administrators, parents and other students and professionals. Who is the patient? What are the goals? What does one do when there seem to be conflicting goals from different parties? This seminar uses case material to illustrate how an understanding of psychodynamics and clinical technique can inform and enhance this complicated therapeutic work.
The participant will be able to:
1.Identify and discuss various challenges of clinical work in a host setting, such as a school.
2.Discuss how to address clinical goals when there appear to be conflicting goals from different parties.
3.List psychodynamic understanding and techniques that could be used in your clinical work in schools.
