Fundamentals of Child Psychotherapy – A Relational Approach


Kelly Reams, LCSW & Redmond Reams, PhD

Course Dates: 9/7, 10/5, 11/2, 12/7/2019, 1/4, 2/1, 3/7, 4/4, 5/2, 6/6/2020
Course Time:    9:30 – 11:00am
Total CMEs Possible: 15

Course Description: We look forward to thinking together about psychodynamic child psychotherapy. Child treatment is a complex mixture of transference and family dynamics, play and symbolism, alliance with parents, and dealing with your own conscious and unconscious reactions to the child and their context. We will open each class with some orienting comments about the readings and then help us deepen our understanding of the central concepts through discussion of your reactions, questions, and associations. During each class, we’ll also hear clinical material from class members and attempt to link the theory with actual clinical encounters from your practices.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the salient characteristics of psychodynamic child psychotherapy;
  2. Use improved strategies to engage with and guide parents psychodynamically;
  3. Have increased understanding of transference-countertransference in child psychotherapy;
  4. Develop greater understanding of children’s use of symbols, metaphor and play in the treatment milieu.
