PSYC 8724 - Child Psychotherapy


(5 cr.) What are some of the special considerations of therapeutic treatment approaches in children? In this course, students have the opportunity to answer this question as they explore the psychological treatment of children from an array of theories and techniques, including play therapy. Students examine and discuss fundamentals and contemporary issues related to playroom organization; intake interviews; and psychological assessment, treatment, evaluation, and intervention. They also explore typical play behaviors of children at various levels of development, cross-cultural aspects of play and their meanings, as well as issues of cultural sensitivity and ethical practice. Students complete a final written assignment to synthesize course concepts and demonstrate their understanding of child psychotherapy. (Prerequisite(s): PSYC 8215.)
