An introduction to psychodynamic psychotherapy
So you are looking for a course on psychodynamic psychotherapy? Then you've come to the right place! (You can find the outline for this course on the Medipsy website or scroll down to see what it covers).
This course was designed specifically for anyone who plans to apply for a psychotherapy permit as per Bill 21, in order to practice psychotherapy in Quebec (we had this course pre-approved by the Order of psychologists of Quebec). If on the other hand you don't plan on practicing in Quebec and just want to learn about psychodynamic psychotherapy, then guess what... you are also in the right place!
This course is open to anyone wanting to learn about psychodynamic psychotherapy. If you are in Quebec, you surely know that a Bill was passed to regulate the practice of psychotherapy. This Bill, often referred to as Bill 21, states that to practice psychotherapy in Quebec, psychotherapists must meet a number of very specific requirements. One of these requirements is to complete 45 hours of training in a domain related to each of the following four recognized modalities: 1. psychodynamic, 2. cognitive behavioural, 3. systemic, and 4. humanistic.
So you need 45 hours of training, considered the introductory training, for each of the 4 theoretical models. This course is precisely that, for psychodynamic psychotherapy (once you've done the basic training on each model , you will also need to do an additional 90
hours of specialization in one of the four models).
