This course explores major theories and techniques utilized in psychotherapeutic settings. Through a combination of readings, discussion, and active role-playing, students examine behavioral, cognitive, existential, humanistic, interpersonal, and psychodynamic approaches to treatment. Counseling skills (e.g., empathy and problem solving) are practiced in a supportive classroom setting. Students also present a clinical case study to their classmates focusing on a specific therapy approach.Prerequisite: PSY 1000 Introduction to Psychology.
