This course is a complement to Methods of Psychotherapy, which provides an overview of theories and approaches. For most students, Foundations of Psychotherapy and Methods of Therapy are taken at the same time. The focus is on building skills for planning, initiating, conducting, and evaluating therapeutic interventions with clients. Class participation and application of skills in practice sessions are essential components of this course. Foundations of Psychotherapy is a 2-part course.
