Requisites for this module
MA C89D24 Psychodynamic Counselling,
MA C89D36 Psychodynamic Counselling (3 year)
This module aims to promote the student's development as a psychodynamic practitioner on placement, using the learning from the rest of the course and building on the clinical seminars throughout the year. As such it is at the core of the course, focussing on the students' developing professional identity and counselling skill.
Seminars consist of students taking it in turns to present detailed accounts of their clinical work, which will be discussed by the group and the tutor. This will allow deeper understanding of the client and the counselling relationship, and for the extension and refinement of students' psychodynamic techniques.
The student will be working with approximately 3 clients each week, receiving weekly supervision, as a minimum, from an external supervisor. A pass or fail grading will be provided by the supervisor, but in addition the learning from the module will be assessed by means of a detailed case study based on the placement experience.
This module aims at helping students:
1. To develop the ability to use psychodynamic theory and insight in professional practice
2. To develop understanding of the role of psychodynamic counsellor in context
3. To develop a professional approach to practice
4. To develop the ability to make thoughtful use of supervision
5. To develop the skills and techniques used in professional psychodynamic practice
By the end of the module you should be able to:
* use psychodynamic theory in practice
* inhabit the role of psychodynamic counsellor effectively
* demonstrate a professional attitude in practice on placement
* demonstrate thoughtful use of supervision
* use personal therapy to inform and deepen practice
No additional information available.
The learning for this module is primarily from the placement experience. Term 3 provides a continuation of this to the end of the year to support the professional development of the student while on placement. A learning journal will be kept, including a log of clinical work.
This module does not appear to have a published bibliography.
