CLI CL520 - Clinical Interviewing

(Credits: 2)

This course focuses on interviewing in the early stages of psychotherapy. Different models including psychoanalytic, neo- Freudian and humanistic approaches are examined specifically with regard to their implications for method and content in interviewing. The development of the individual therapist’s style as an interviewer is examined in the context of these theoretical models. Through role playing, students will have a chance to look at themselves as interviewers with regard to both the specifics of interviewing and the actual development of competencies. Open only to students in the doctoral program in Clinical Psychology.
