Looking Inside and Out: Focusing on Becoming a Child Psychotherapist
Course Masters: Rev. Linda A. Horrell, MDiv, MSW and Ed Sprunger, MSW, LCSW
Two lenses of Assessments and Interventions bringing one field into focus
These classes will be a basic introduction to psychodynamic and developmental issues involving children and adolescents, and the issues facing parents, teachers, and child psychotherapists. As a pair of classes, each Monday night students will begin learning about Assessments. We will start with a conversation on the basic understanding of psychodynamic principles and concepts. Following the Assessment class, we will hold the Interventions class that will align its discussion of interventions that will illuminate issues addressed in the previous class. Together, both classes will create a broad field of vision for participants to apply and discover the fascinating world of human development as it is in our community today. Attendees should expect to be fully supported in learning how to start out in this work, or how to enhance and expand into deepening one’s practice as a child mental health professional.
The course will provide an orientation for KIPP fellows, Schiele Clinic practicum students working at the KIPP Academy, as well as Community Education participants.
