Psychodynamic Theories- The Truth Is Locked In Our Unconscious

Course Description

Psychodynamic Theories (i.e. ego psychology, object relations) are presented as a lens for understanding personality development and human behavior spanning across childhood and adulthood. Emphasis is placed on ‘unconscious drives’ and ‘early experiences’ as motivations for human behavior across the life course. Focus is also placed on temperament and the quality of the parent-child relationship (i.e. goodness-of-fit). Implications of psychodynamic concepts to clinical social work practice will be underscored, specific to supportive counseling and psychoanalytic treatment methods.
