PCC 508 Child Psychopathology in Clinical Practice
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course deals with the scope of child psychopathology within the framework of clinical practice (for pastors, counselors, psychotherapists). The focus is upon the nature and function of child psychopathology as has been developed in the work of Karen Horney, Melanie Klein, and Anna Freud, each considered in their own right an original thinker and neo-Freudian. We will pay particular attention to the psychoanalytic theories and their applications in clinical practice developed by each of these three major contributors to modern psychotherapy.
