Subject outline

In this subject students will focus on working with the Process Experiential and Emotion Focused Process in practice. This subject, together with PHE5PEA, focuses on using experiential processes in the context of case material brought by students. Students will be expected to keep a logbook of their practice over the course of the semester and will be required to regularly complete measures pertaining to practice, as devised by Robert Elliott, in order to track their developing competence with this approach. Theory, as it relates to student psychotherapy practice issues, will be revised and deepened.
