    A psychoanalytic approach in further developing core assessment practice


    This psychoanalytic course has been developed for therapists of all modalities to support them in further development of their therapeutic skills as assessors, whether new to assessing or for clinicians wanting to further explore their assessment capacities. Assessment may be considered as the most challenging, yet fascinating function of therapeutic work. It is a complex and demanding task and yet there seems to be limited clinical training and writing in this field when compared with other areas of therapeutic intervention.
