Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide the fundamental elements of clinical psychology, as an applicative discipline: a) which takes into consideration the subjectivity of the individual case (idiographic approach); b) which refers to a specific method (the clinical method); c) which contemplates a heterogeneous set of techniques (diagnostic and therapeutic). In the evaluation of clinical disorders, starting from descriptive diagnostics, the course will adopt as a main theoretical reference the psychoanalytic model, flanked by the contribution of phenomenological psychopathology especially in reference to the area of severe (borderline and psychotic) pathology.

Program

The program is divided into three parts:

Part I. The background frame: definition, method, classification:

  • History + definition (Lectures 1-2)
  • The clinical method + the language + nosographic classification systems (Lectures 3-4)

Part II. The clinical core: vulnerability devices and related clinical areas (with focus on severe pathologies of borderline and psychotic areas):

  • Conflict and anxious-obsessive area (Lectures 5-6)
  • Trauma and borderline area + focus on self-harm and suicide (Lectures 7-8-9-10)
  • Mood and depressive area (Lectures 11-12)
  • Consciusness and psychotic area + French perspectives on psychiatric classification (bouffées délirantes and chronic delusional psychoses)  (Lectures 13-14-15)

Part III. Hints of care: treatment models for clinical disorders:

  • Overview on different psychotherapeutic treatments for clinical disorders (Lectures 16-17)
  • Once there were asylums: the treatment after Basaglia's law (Lectures 18-19)

Bridging Courses

None.

  • Communication skills: the specific language for the description of psychopathological and basic clinical phenomena.
