Learning Objectives

The course aims to increase the student's knowledge in relation to main psychotherapy models through a critical / comparative vision based on the theoretical analysis of the constructs underlying the models but also in the light of the results of empirical research. A further objective of the teaching is the critical learning of some psychotherapy techniques, particularly related to the management of the therapeutic relationship as a non-specific therapeutic factor.

Program

The initial part of the course will focus on the definition of psychotherapy in a broad sense, its differentiation from other forms of intervention (eg psychological support). The main psychotherapy models will be introduced (Dynamic, Cognitive, Family Therapy, MBT, DBT, TFP etc) and the differences in theoretical and applicative terms will be highlighted. In the central part of the course, particular attention will be given to the techniques of managing the therapeutic relationship, with particular emphasis on the strategies for resolving the breakdowns of the therapeutic alliance, the management of the transference and the methods of conducting clinical interviews. In the central part of the course a specific focus will be represented by the psychotherapy of patients with Personality Disorders. The final part of the course will focus on the results of empirical research in particular relating to the process and outcome of psychotherapies as well as on the problems inherent in the verification of effectiveness in the context of the international debate on the Evidence Base in psychotherapy.
