While the therapeutic alliance, transference, countertransference, defenses, and resistances comprise the cornerstone of psychodynamic psychotherapy, they are relevant to virtually all forms of psychotherapy. By monitoring, examining, and exploring these concepts, the therapy is moved beyond the day-to-day examination of circumstances and events into the reality of meanings, conflicts, and imagination. In this course, Dr. Michael J. Gerson will provide you with “tools” to differentiate each of these components and how they contribute to your clinical assessment and interventions.
The course includes an online written manuscript and accompanying audio files, for optional review in multiple modalities. An online multiple choice test and Certificate of Completion follow completion of the course for 8 CE credits. Intermediate level. A brief video provides opening remarks by Dr. Gerson. This course may be applied to our Certificate of Advanced Study in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy if desired. $119.
