Special Extension Program Seminars - Group C, Consultation Seminars for Mental Health Clinicians Working with Infants/Children/Adolescents

Seminar Coordinator: Elizabeth Tuters

Seminar Leaders: Elizabeth Tuters, Sally Doulis, Michael Blugerman

Please note: These seminars have been postponed until the 2017-2018 academic year.

The aim of this seminar is to provide mental health clinicians, working with the younger ages, with an opportunity to present their current cases to a small ongoing Work Study group, in order to deepen their understanding of the clinical process. As well, to fine tune their therapeutic skills, to link theory to practice, and learn more about their own experience of doing in-depth clinical work. Didactic material will be recommended where necessary, however, the primary focus will be on the application of psychoanalytic theory to clinical practice, and understanding the importance of Transference & Countertransference.

Learning Objectives:

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

  1. To learn about client–therapist relationships: transference & countertransference.
  2. To enable the development of an observational capacity.
  3. To think about the meaning of behavior and psychic development within the family context.
  4. To tolerate uncertainty while trying to understand the situation.
  5. To develop non-judgemental, empathic attitudes with client and family.
*This program was developed in collaboration with CAPCT (Canadian Association of Psychoanalytic Child Therapists & Hincks-Dellcrest Centre).
