OVERVIEW

The Developmental Psychopathology Laboratory is an experiential completion of the theoretical part of the course and is designed as a space for active student participation. The discussion of clinical cases will be based on the Developmental Psychopathology framework. This approach has as its cardinal principles: the continuity between normality and pathology, between childhood and adult life, between risk and protective factors, and the use of an evolutionary perspective.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The workshop aims to introduce students to the essential and operational parameters of psychodiagnostic assessment of children and adolescents, from a psychodynamic perspective, within the theoretical framework of Developmental Psychopathology.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the laboratory is to introduce the essential and operational parameters of psychodiagnostic assessment of the child and his/her family within the theoretical framework of Developmental Psychopathology.

The intended learning outcomes relate to the exploration and understanding of the methods inherent in the psychodiagnostic process of the child and his or her family.

More specifically, through participation in the planned classroom activities, by the end of the course students will be able to
- describe the main steps related to the psychodiagnostic process of the child and his/her family;
- apply the acquired knowledge in terms of psychodiagnostic tools and processes useful in analyzing a case in developmental psychopathology;
- design a psychodiagnostic process for the child and his/her family's request for help;
- manage one's interactions with a cooperative attitude that allows for good negotiation between different opinions, adapting one's communication to the specific context;
- reflect on one's skills, develop critical thinking, and manage complexity in carrying out the psychodiagnostic process;
- reflect on learned and unlearned skills and evaluate learning according to individual needs.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures will be frequently alternated with small group learning and plenary exercises that allow for active and cooperative learning. Clinical cases will be discussed, exercises related to psychodiagnostic testing will be proposed, role-playing on clinical interviews will be conducted. Homework assignments will be assigned and then will be discussed in plenary and small group.
