Work w/Affect Clinical Encounter - PSI 422 CRN 76827 (2.0 credit hours)

Course Fee: $TBA

This experiential course will provide a confidential setting for therapist to explore all aspects of their work with families, couples, and individuals.  We will focus in particular on sharpening skills related to working with affect in the moment—putting thoughts and feelings into words as they occur about ourselves and towards others in the room—in order to enhance our ability to notice, articulate, and respond effectively to  emotional process.  Special attention will be given to increasing members’ clinical effectiveness through more deeply understanding the influences of countertransference, emotional induction, projective identification, and the therapist’ own history.  We will work to help members appreciate their clinical strengths and expertise and examine those areas that we all find clinically challenging.

Instructor: William H. Watson, Ph.D.
