Psychotherapy with Children

Psychotherapy with Children and Adolescents
How is psychotherapy carried out with children and adolescents who are so different from adults? What therapeutic approaches meet their emotional, social, and developmental needs? How does a therapist use play and other expressive therapies to help children grow and flourish? In this seminar we will explore the central theories and practices of several therapeutic approaches using the research and clinical literature and clinical materials (e.g. case discussions, videotaped therapy sessions, artwork, narratives). Evaluation will be based on student led-discussions, group presentations, and research and reaction papers. Not open to students who have taken PSYC 0319. (PSYC 0105; open to junior and senior psychology majors only) 3 hrs. sem.
