NURS 6640 - Psychotherapy With Individuals


(5 cr.: 3 cr. didactic, 2 cr. practicum)
Psychotherapy involves giving more than “good advice.” In order for the psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP) to be effective, deliberate approaches to therapy must be consistent with evidence-based practices. Learners in this course examine a variety of therapeutic techniques that can be used during psychotherapy sessions with individuals across the lifespan. Emphasis is placed on evidence-based applications of various therapeutic approaches for a wide range of psychiatric issues. Practicum experiences focus on psychotherapeutic approaches with individuals.
