This six-session child psychotherapy course will focus on illustrating aspects of child development and child therapy, clinical theory, therapeutic listening (to words, communications through nonverbal behaviors and play), and technique. We will present case material and clinical vignettes, supplemented by at least one reading for each session.  Included in the series will be a session that will focus on consultation with parents, teachers and other professionals, including issues of confidentiality and the choice of material one can present in professional settings.

Case material will help participants to understand how clinical interaction brings to life aspects of theory and development, and illustrates clinical impressions, choice of interventions and their impact. Presenters will pay special attention to the interplay between inevitable therapeutic misattunements or ruptures and subsequent repair in the therapeutic relationship. We will also be sensitive to the role of  transference/countertransference and enactments in sessions with children and adolescents.
This course is designed for child and adult clinicians who have been in practice for at least two years. Questions can be directed to the office and will be responded to as soon as possible.

Dates:     6 Monday evenings as follows: 3/2, 3/16, 3/30, 4/13,  
          4/27, 5/11.

Time:      7:00-9:00 p.m.
