Clinical Psychology: the application of psychological knowledge and tecniques to alleviate distress and promote health.

- assessment (interviews and testing)
- consultation

Lightner Witner: study of individuals by observation or experimentation with the intention of promoting change
Definition of Counseling

Counseling Psychology is unique in its attention both to normal and abnormal human development
Psy.D // “Practitioner-Scholar Model”

Ph.D // “Scientist Practitioner Model”
Models of Therapeutic Intervention
Clinical psychologists use a variety of therapeutic techniques
- Psychodynamic
- Cognitive
- Behavioral
- Humanistic
- Systems (e.g. family or couples therapy),
- Gestalt
- Existential
- Transpersonal
“eclectic” approach – combines two or more techniques or models
Psychodynamic perspective
- developed out of the Psychoanalysis of Sigmund Freud.
Psychodynamic – see a patient once or twice a week
Psychoanalysis – see a patient four or five times a week, more in depth (expensive)
Modern day psychodynamic approach focuses on conflict
+ how has the patient resolved the conflict? healthy/unhealthy
(explore unconscious, what went on in childhood, free association, analysis of defenses and transferences).
Defenses: anything that you do that helps you cope with anxiety. Not a conscious decision.
Ex. Projection: project what’s in your unconscious on someone else
Denial: (ex. cigarette smoking) doesn’t believe they’re affected
Regression, Rationalization, Reaction Formation, Identification with Aggressor
There is an Infinite Number: anything can be a defense mechanism if it serves the purpose of defense
and is unconscious
ex. heterosexual male – “serial adventurer”
defense mechanism – moves on from relationship to relationship to
- reduce anxiety of homosexuality
- avoid getting to close, past abuse/abandonment
Take some relationship from your past and impose it on someone else.
Male client working with female therapist
has issues with mother, begins to treat therapist as mother
Counter Transferences
Transferences therapists have to patients
occur because of unresolved issues in your past
or you’re reacting to something the patient does that upsets/disturbs you
whenever the therapist is acting in a non-neutral way to the patient
