GPSA 703 Fieldwork Seminar – Issues of Bias in the Treatment of Mental Illness & SGS – 4 credits

In this course, students will study their countertransference responses, listen to, and become aware of dynamics and how each
individual speaks in therapy 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 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, interactions patterns and the impact of differing lifestyles and
maladaptive behaviors, including stress, abuse and discrimination on subjective responses.
