Course description

This course gives an introductory grounding in psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theory and practice. It was created hand in hand with the OPQ therefore, it qualifies for the Psychotherapy permit courses.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is based on the premise that human problems and behaviour express the unconscious forces and internal conflicts.

Training in psychodynamic psychotherapy requires a commitment to deepening knowledge through reading and reflection, it is the ability to approach complex material with an independent mind, the willingness to seek necessary resources, and the dedication to fulfil program responsibilities with professionalism.

The course is organised as follows:

The first year focuses on beginning principles and assessment tools. Students learn psychodynamic assessment and interview techniques for working with patients, and are introduced to psychodynamic theories of the therapeutic alliance, the therapeutic frame, and fundamental ethical issues, including approaches to suicidality.

The seminars combine lectures and discussions, based on assigned readings; the seminars are organised in four modules.
