Module Description

This module provides further theoretical and clinical seminars to deepen students understanding of the theory and practice of psychodynamic counselling. The theory seminars extend the students understanding of a range of typical client presentations, providing psychodynamic understanding of work with young people with a range of different symptoms and problems. The clinical seminars help the students develop in their approach to clinical work, using the theoretical learning to deepen and broaden their expertise. They will develop further the students ability to learn from the work of others, to bring creative clinical thinking to bear on a range of cases and to learn from the input of others to their own work.
