12 ECTS points = 300 hours work load:

- 120 hours – attendance

- 90 hours – preparing the case study

- 60 hours – writing brief reports after each session

- 30 hours – reading literature

The aim of the class is to provide students with the first experience of

being in contact with the patient in the role of a psychotherapist. The

students will have the opportunity to participate in the class actively as

co-therapists of one patient and observe the process of psychotherapy of

two patients in Academic Center of Psychotherapy (Smyczkowa Street

11A). There will be 8 students enrolled in the class. Each student for

approximately 7 sessions will conduct psychotherapy of one patient with

the leading psychotherapist while the rest of the group will observe the

process. After two sessions with the patients there will be one-hour

supervision. The direct contact with one patient will be the basis for

formulating of a case study that nowadays is one of the standard criteria

to become a certified psychotherapist.

extreme life situations will be handled as a valid excuse. All the absences
