PSY-502 Integration Seminar (S22)
Students meet in small groups with a Teaching Assistant (who is a graduate of ADLER’s MPsy program, supervised by a member of the faculty) to integrate learning of content presented in current and previous courses. Actual cases from practitioner experience or the literature are proposed by the participants or provided by the Teaching Assistant as a vehicle for integrative and collaborative consideration. Over the series, students are expected to engage in increasingly complex critical and creative thinking, beginning at the novice level and progressing to competent by the end of the second year. The main objective of the seminar series is to introduce students to an integrative approach that can create and maintain bridges between theory regarding psychological phenomena, processes, data, concepts, and models and their application in practice. A particular skill or activity appropriate to each program and sequence/year will be the focus of each Seminar series. In addition, Teaching Assistants will integrate discussions on concepts of wellness and mental health for students and their clients.
