Objectives

This new one day workshop delivered online by Dr. Kevin Fehin aims to provide an introduction to the ideas and concepts involved in psychodynamic psychotherapy, including transference and countertransference. It will explore attitudes, values and beliefs about human nature from a psychodynamic perspective and provide an understanding of psychopathology and presenting symptoms from this viewpoint.

 

Some of the applications of psychodynamic thinking both within and outside the clinical setting are introduced. There will also be opportunities for thinking about the place of psychodynamic ideas in working with mental health.
