Clinical psychology offers many understandings of what psychotherapy is and how it works. There are many models of therapy to choose from, but how does one choose? In this course we will explore what psychotherapy is from multiple perspectives with the intention on developing a moral and ethical framework through which psychotherapeutic practice can be critically understood. Through this exploration we will examine how shifting cultural values, the reform of the health care system, and other social factors define this healing practice. Prerequisite: Prior undergraduate background in psychology.
