This supervised group study course is taken concomitantly with Externship Seminar and with the first four semester of clinical case seminar. The students study individual cases at their Fieldwork Site or the NJCC in depth, presenting and reading about the dynamics of each case as well as their personal reactions. The students process the challenges in working with and learning about serious psychopathology in a treatment relationship. The goal of the course is to help students identify the defenses of the narcissistic individual and the countertransference reactions of the treating therapist. Students will present cases with process notes as a way to study the dynamics of the cases. Each week three students meet with the faculty person and present their cases, studying the most therapeutic approach to each case.
