Video Games in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: Opening a Window to Play in Treatment

Video Games in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: Opening a Window to Play in Treatment

5.00 - 40.00
Mike Langlois will discuss how current technologies play out in the psychotherapy treatment room, and demonstrate how video games used by clients are rich with metaphors related to the client's personality, attachment styles, and ego defenses. Using case study material, he will show how clinicians can integrate technology into psychodynamic psychotherapy in order to facilitate a deeper understanding of our clients, their projections, transference and countertransference. The presentation will also help clinicians to determine when and how video gaming is a healthy resource, pathological or an obstacle to client functioning. Will be held on Zoom. CEUs: 1.5.
