Teaching Pragmatic Psychodynamic Psychotherapy to Graduate Social Work Students
Duncan-Daston, Rana; Schneller, Debora
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v36 n2 p176-196 2016
Evolving developments in psychodynamic theory have strengthened it as an evidence-based approach and have made it concordant with social work's strengths-based, multicultural perspective. An elective focused on teaching fundamental concepts of psychodynamic psychotherapy was developed for graduate social work students based on Kolb's theory of experiential learning, applied to Summers and Barber's pragmatic model of psychodynamic psychotherapy. Data were collected based on students' experienced self-efficacy with specific competencies in psychodynamic psychotherapy in the first, sixth, and last class. Outcomes were positive, and the data were used to make specific suggestions to strengthen course outcomes.
