This 30-week group supervision course will provide trained child therapists with the opportunity to learn about psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults. It is expected to fill a gap in the training for the practices of child psychotherapists who also treat adults. It will be done through the study of the material from individual cases, provided by the participants, for several weeks at a time. It is expected to illuminate characteristics and techniques associated with different diagnostic groups of adult patients, goals of therapy, various difficulties in therapy, and different stages of treatment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify differences between psychotherapy with children and adolescents on the one hand, and adults on the other.
  2. Learn about the various diagnostic groups to be met with in adult psychotherapy and the implications for techniques.
  3. Identify the psychosocial tasks associated with the various stages of adult life and how these relate to the goals in psychotherapy.
  4. Learn about the forms of psychotherapy typical of adult treatments, e.g. short- versus long-term, and how these affect techniques.
  5. Identify and learn how to deal with emergencies or stalemates in adult treatments.
