PSYC 542 - Psychotherapy: Theory and Practice II

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: Matriculation in MA program in psychology or consent of instructor
This course is designed for graduate students in clinical psychology who are interested in developing effective therapeutic techniques for working with young children and early adolescents. The course will examine child psychopathology from a developmental perspective. From this model, various approaches (humanistic, behavioral, cognitive and psychodynamic) to child therapy will be applied and evaluated. No preferred treatment modality will be espoused, rather students will be expected to make use of a combination of techniques and integrate various forms of psychotherapy. Moreover, contextual factors related to diversity will be integrated throughout the course.
