These seminars provide child therapists with the opportunity to learn about psychoanalytic psychotherapy with adults. It fills the gap in the scope of practice for child therapists who also treat adults. The participants present clinical material on rotation. The leader encourages discussion and illuminates characteristics and techniques associated with various diagnostic groups of adults, goals of therapy, difficulties encountered and stages of treatment process. Didactic material is assigned when required for further understanding.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the seminars the participants will be able to:

  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.
*This program was developed in collaboration with CAPCT (Canadian Association of Psychoanalytic Child Therapists).
