Event: Psychodynamic Case Conceptualization
Speaker: Dr. Robert S. Fink, PhD
This workshop will consist of 2 case conceptualizations, 1 adult case and 1 child/adolescent case. With the purpose of helping the clinician’s collective understanding of the client’s problems as viewed through a psychodynamic orientation. The biological, psychological, and social contexts of the client will be examined in detail. Research will be presented relating to the specific case, co‐occurring symptoms will be identified with the goal of reaching a well formulated diagnosis. Ultimately a treatment plan will be discussed in relation to the diagnosis. The seminars main purpose is to help model a breakdown and to provide a theoretical orientation that works within a framework for the clinician. The goals are to condense and synthesize multiple pieces of information into a coherent and well‐developed narrative. This narrative will help to identify not only the precipitating cause(s) of the client’s problems, but also the internal and external drives of the client, that maintain the problems.
