Readings will address the contributions of Freud and ego psychology, Sullivan and contemporary interpersonalists, British object relations theories, self-psychology, and contemporary relational psychoanalysis. Readings, class discussion, and presentations will also address special topics like trauma, attachment, and neuroscience. While this is a theoretical course, clinical material may be presented by students or instructor to illustrate concepts. Prerequisites: For clinical students: Psychodynamic Interview. For all students: Foundations of Intervention. School psychology students without the Psychodynamic Interview course may be welcome with the permission of the instructor.

The course will include individual, group, and family therapy interventions. The multisystems model will be introduced as a conceptual framework for comprehensive work with adolescents. Motivational interviewing techniques will be taught as an evidence-based individual treatment that is particularly useful with adolescents who are initially resistant to treatment. The issues of violence prevention and gang involvement in schools and communities will be explored. SANKOFA, a culturally sensitive, evidence-based group treatment intervention will be discussed. Strategies for involving ethnic minority families in our treatment interventions in clinics and schools will be explored throughout the course.

18:821:544,545,546 Psychological Clinic Practicum (2,2,1) Learn experientially how to function as a member of the professional outpatient staff in the GSAPP Psychological Clinic, with weekly supervision by licensed psychologists: a) provide therapy and assessment services (according to your training goals) to clients with adult, child, marital, and family problems; b) meet with assigned supervisors weekly, one hour for each client session; c) collect fees; and d) submit required clinical records. Register every semester in which new or ongoing clients will be seen through the Psychological Clinic, either for assessment or therapy. ALL FIRST YEAR STUDENTS MUST REGISTER FOR AT LEAST 1 CREDIT for the fall semester. You must register for all clients seen in the Psychological Clinic: 1 Client=1E credit. If you have completed your GSAPP clinic requirements or if you choose to meet course experiential requirements in off-campus settings with supervision in that setting, then you are not required to register for Psychological Clinic practicum. Second-year clinical Psy.D. students are expected to work with two clients. Students seeing one client, register for 18:821:546:01 (1 credit); students seeing two clients, register for 18:821:544:01 (2 credits); students seeing three clients, register for 18:821:544:01 and 18:821:546:01 (3 credits total); students seeing four clients, register for 18:821:544:01 and 18:821:545:01 (4 credits total).

18:821:555 Applications of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety and Depression (3)
This two-semester course focuses on the clinical application of specific treatment protocols shown to be effective in controlled research studies to address anxiety and depression. Students learn how to conduct a multidimensional assessment using structured clinical interviews, generate a cognitive-behavioral case conceptualization, and implement specific cognitive-behavioral strategies targeting the diagnosed symptoms and problems. Outcomes will be assessed before and after therapy to measure treatment success. Students evaluate and treat one case in the clinic following a general introduction to assessment and treatment in the first few weeks of the course. A second case is added in the spring semester. Topics in class will cover child and adult assessment and treatment, and cases will be either child or adult. Supervision of cases will be conducted in group format, and students will be expected to arrange a 1.5-hour group supervision in addition to regularly scheduled class time.
Prerequisites: 18:820:504, 635 or instructor's approval.
18:821:556 Clinical Research and Treatment for Youth Anxiety and Depression (3) This clinical applications course will provide didactic and experiential training in state-of-the-art diagnostic, assessment, and treatment procedures for youth anxiety and mood disorders (ages 8-15). Students will become competent in the administration of common structured diagnostic interviews (e.g., KSADS, KID-SCID) and objective measurement (e.g., Child Depression Inventory, Multidimensional Anxiety Scale for Children, Child Behavior Checklist). Students will develop a knowledge base of theoretical and empirical research on the phenomenology, assessment, and treatment of internalizing disorders in youth, focusing on evidence-based protocols. Students will receive didactic and experiential training in multiple manual-based treatments that have received empirical support for their outcomes and conduct therapy with at least two clinical cases seeking treatment through the Youth Anxiety and Depression Clinic (YAD-C). All students will be participating in a clinical research setting, recruiting research participants, collecting data, administering assessments, and providing treatment. This will provide a model of how research can be completed within a service setting. Prerequisite: Students must receive permission from the instructor prior to enrolling for or attending this course.
18:821:557 Serious Mental Illness: Hospital and Community Care (3) Introduces modern therapeutic approaches to the treatment of serious mental illness.

18:821:558 Learning Disabilities - Adult (2)
Training in psychological assessment and integrative report writing is a fundamental and necessary requisite for being a well-rounded psychologist. The primary objective of this course is to teach and train students on individual psychological tests (cognitive, academic, neuropsychological, objective personality) in preparation for conducting cognitive evaluations through the GSAPP Center for Psychological Services Clinic. Through didactic lecture, experiential group exercises, and group supervision of cases, students are expected to demonstrate knowledge and competency in the administration, scoring, and interpretation of various assessment tools, and understand how foundations of assessment are relevant to the field. In addition to providing training on particular assessment tools, the course is also designed to expose students to a range of disorders that are commonly assessed using cognitive measures (ADHD, Specific Learning Disorder, etc.). This course is designed for student interaction and application of principles offsets and measurement. The didactic component of the course will be expanded by case data presentations, pragmatic experiential experiences (e.g., in-class mock administration/scoring of measures), and group discussion of cases.

18:821:604 Working With Trauma (3) Focuses on clinical work with patients suffering from reactions to traumatic experiences, in particular, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). From its initial application to Vietnam veterans, our understanding of PTSD has more recently been expanded to include the effects of such experiences as child abuse and adult rape, as well as exposure to such catastrophic experiences as 9/11. The goal of the course will be to increase understanding of traumatic symptoms and syndromes and to describe two approaches (psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral) to clinical work with these patients.
18:821:605 Integrative Perspectives on Trauma (3) Introduces students to the theory and practice of trauma work, defined as assessment and intervention with individuals, families and communities that are exposed to a variety of traumatic events and experiences, ranging from individual victimization to large-scale complex emergencies. The course, which focuses primarily on working with adults, takes an integrative perspective; presenting three major theoretical/conceptual approaches to trauma work (cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and psychosocial), it then presents a conceptual and clinical framework for meaningful integration of these theoretical perspectives. Combining clinical and community/ecological perspectives on trauma, aspects of trauma work ranging from specific, evidence-informed interventions for traumatized individuals to broader, internationally based psychosocial interventions for communities and populations, are presented for critical review. Informed by a philosophy and value of cultural responsiveness, the course examines the applicability and appropriateness of major trauma interventions for specific cultural, racial and ethnic communities.
