PSY5247 Clinical Case Seminar: Topics in Marriage and Family Therapy
This course accompanies quarters/sessions 2-4 of a student’s practicum experience (5261-5263 or 5250-5252), and involves formal presentation of ongoing clinical cases. Students will present videotape, audiotape, and/or treatment studies in class, for feedback on case conceptualization, systemic theory application, and treatment planning that is consistent with theoretical orientation. Instructors may also use role play, and other techniques to help students with treatment impasses, illustrate, and practice interventions, etc. Students will learn the application of both individual and systemic theories. This course is also intended to support students in preparing for their Master’s Oral Exam. Limited to students in clinical practice. Students with unsatisfactory progress in this course may be required to take extra quarter(s) beyond the three required for graduation.
