More Info:Flyer

Many models of therapy may be used exclusively or in combination with other treatment models. Now is your opportunity to observe the conceptualization and treatment planning of two experienced therapists, Dr. Arthur Freeman and Dr. Martin Keller. Dr. Freeman represents a Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) mode and Dr. Keller a Psychodynamic Perspective (PP). An advanced student at Midwestern University's doctoral program in Clinical Psychology will present a single case* and Drs. Keller and Freeman will discuss how they would treat the patient regarding conceptualization, the types of interventions that might be used, relationship building, assessment procedures, and the issues of countertransference and resistance.

*Patient identifiers will be disguised in accord with the Ethical Code for Psychologists Program Objectives

Participants will:

• Compare and contrast the conceptualization process in CBT and PP

• Discuss the elements of relationship building in CBT and PP

• Describe the issue of countertransference and resistance in CBT and PP

• Identify similarities in the two treatments

This program is free of charge and has been approved by the National Board for Certified Counselors and by the American Psychological Association. A total of 2.0 CE hours will be provided.
