School of Professional Psychology and Health MCPS 5501 3.00

This course presents a history of psychodynamic ideas and their application in clinical settings. It offers a historical perspective, beginning with drive theory through the development of relational theory, and covers basic theoretical and clinical concepts; clinical theories about the self and self- development; and the topics of transference, countertransference, and defense. The course examines relationships between psychodynamic and other clinical theories from both a traditional and an embodied stance using both text and experiential learning, such as work with movement and dreams. It takes an embodied sociocultural approach to psychdynamics, exploring cultural issues and sexuality, gender, work, creativity, ethnicity, and schooling. SOM student
