Due to recommendations by the Washington State Health Department, we are postponing this class. We will update this page as we have more information.
We’ll talk together about the distinguishing elements of psychoanalytic child therapy and its contrast and similarity to other modalities of child therapy. We’ll think holistically about approaches that are both child directed and therapist directed; maintain a collaborative stance with child, family, school, and other providers; and that integrate family interventions with child psychotherapy.
- Be able to identify the distinctions of psychoanalytic child therapy, in comparison to other modalities.
- Be able to assess symptoms from a psychoanalytic perspective that privileges developmental capacity for love and work and creativity over symptom resolution.
- Be able to talk with your colleagues about your clinical material in a safe and fun setting.
