PSD7122 Psychodynamic Theory and Its Application to Diverse Populations

Course Description

This course reviews drive theory and ego psychology, object-relations theory, self-psychology, and intersubjective approaches to therapy. The paradigm shift in psychoanalytic thought from a drive theory to a relational theory model and the implications of this shift for clinical practice are examined. A critical review of psychodynamic theory and practice from a cultural perspective is included.
