Module Description

This module broadens the range of interventions familiar to the students. It covers other applications of psychodynamic thinking, in family, group and shorter-term work, and then introduces the students to other orientations in work with children and adolescents. It will not provide sufficient grounding in these other approaches for the students to be proficient in them, but will provide enough for the students to understand the basic ideas underpinning them so they can have a respectful awareness of where psychodynamic thinking sits in the wider range of potential interventions. The module also covers assessment, so that the students can be alert to issues informing choice of treatment.
