The training course includes, in line with the provisions of the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), theoretical hours, practical hours, exercises, examination of case studies, hours of individual study. This activity is always carried out under the supervision of the Scientific Committee and is led by the teaching staff. Lessons are organized on the seventh end, two lessons per month on Saturdays or Sundays plus a whole weekend (Saturday and Sunday) every two months, in order to allow attendance to those who are professionally engaged during the week.
The School of Specialization in Strategic Brief Psychotherapy, based on the assumption of learning by doing, is mainly structured on application work, with most of the hours dedicated, after a first theoretical training, to the study of videotape and to real clinical practice. In addition to the hours dedicated to basic theoretical teaching, in the first two years the work is mainly focused on the study, together with the teacher, of videotapes concerning therapies completed from the first to the last session on individual pathologies. For each case, the communication, the relationship and the technique used for the treatment and resolution of the case are analyzed session by session.
Particular attention will be paid to the clinical interview technique which in brief strategic therapy is at the same time diagnosis and intervention, since it is able, already in the first session, to modify and restructure the perception of the person with respect to their problem. Subsequently, during the third and fourth years each student will have the opportunity to follow, in co-therapy with Giorgio Nardone, from three to five patients and will be able to observe the therapies carried out by the Director of the School through the closed circuit of cameras so as to be able to enter into the heart of their profession. The cases followed and completed will be the object of the final elaboration of the Specialization thesis.
