Annual Psychodynamic Case Conference 2022
The psychodynamic case conference is an annual training to enhance knowledge in the clinical field especially through discussion around insight-oriented approaches to complex cases. Psychodynamic theory approaches case conceptualization of understanding in-depth unconscious and conscious processes related to one’s sense of self, interpersonal relatedness, defense mechanisms and attachment styles. This conference offers a multifaced approach to a clinical case. A presenter will read a clinical case write up, then following the write up the discussant’s will each read their written conceptualization of the case. This will then be followed with a Q and A from the audience.
This program is intended for:
- Social Workers
- Mental Health Counselors
- Nurse Practitioners
By the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Apply the principles of psychodynamic formulation, i.e. bridge a detailed narrative of what happened in a particular case to the patient's symptoms and their various conscious and unconscious meanings.
- Describe themes that are commonly encountered during the psychodynamic treatment process, including transference and countertransference phenomena, resistance, enactment and working through.
- Explain various psychodynamic psychotherapeutic techniques in clinical practice.
