Unit 8 PS380: Clinical Psychology
Option 2: Complete the Alternative Assignment.
You will benefit most from attending the graded Seminar as an active participant. However, if you are unable to attend you have the opportunity to make up the points by summarizing the archived Seminar. Your paper should be written in appropriate APA style for a written summary. In other words, you are not required to use direct quotes, cite references, include an abstract, or include a reference page. You do, however, have to write in complete sentences and paragraphs, provide a title page, and include a professional presentation. Listen to the archived Seminar to provide a summary and respond to the Seminar questions. Submit your summary to the Seminar Dropbox before the end of the unit to receive credit.
Please come to Seminar prepared to discuss the following:
You have now had an introduction to more than four different schools of psychotherapy (Psychodynamic, Humanistic, Behavioral, and Cognitive).
- Which of these therapeutic approaches appeals to you the most? Based on what you know from research, which type of therapy do you think is best? Which approach seems to fit your style best?
- Chapter 11, in a discussion of psychotherapy research, refers to efficacy versus effectiveness. How are these two kinds of research different? What implications do they have as you interpret psychotherapy research findings?
- Do you think you will practice different types of therapy for different problems? If so, what problems seem most appropriate for which kinds of therapy?
