GPSA702 Fieldwork Seminar: Issues of Bias in the Treatment of Mental Health Illness-4cr | WEDNESDAY | 7:10 – 9:30pm | Vaccaro (Main) | (Cert/MAMHC/MAP)

This course includes an SGS. Students will study their countertransference responses and listen to and become aware of clients’ dynamics and how each client speaks to present these dynamics through symbolic communication. This clinical course has a focus on how perceptions shape our views of various society groups. Aspects of bias that influence practice experiences are examined while providing client hours at an externship site. Students will identify the phenomena of bias in cases presented in relation to diversity in terms of ethic, sociological and psychopathological processes. They will learn to observe their own reactions to the clinical work and use with growing understanding as a clinical and technical tool. Students’ will achieve this by studying internal unexamined perceptions as well as broader societal prejudices, society trends and subgroups, interaction patterns and the impact of differing lifestyles and maladaptive behaviors, including stress, abuse and discrimination on subjective responses. *Students must submit a request to the training committee for permission to begin fieldwork to be enrolled in this course.
