Irle Goldman's December Salon--"“THROUGH DIFFERENT LENSES: Analyzing a Clinical Session from the Perspectives of Theories, Psychopathology, Human Development, and Clinical Skills”
How do we deconstruct and reconstruct the counseling experience? Join Irle Goldman as he reviews clips of a famous client session and demonstrates how the different perspectives of counseling--theories, psychopathology, human development and clinical skills--can help inform what we do and how we are with our clients. Which theoretic school do we belong to, and how does this affect what we say and do? How do we conceptualize the client’s suffering in a way that guides us towards a useful intervention? How do we tune into the client’s needs based on an understanding certain developmental challenges? Which tools and interventions make sense at which time?
1. Participants will learn a holistic and integrated approach to clinical practice.
2. Partipants will learn what each of 4 counseling perspectives (theories, psychopathology, human development and clinical skills) has to contribute to clinical interventions.
3. Participants will learn a structured way to understand different areas of study in counseling.
