The Psychotherapy Curriculum
Robert Galatzer-Levy, MD: Collection
Hear all of our previously recorded interviews with eminent psychoanalyst and teacher, Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy.
Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy has been a favorite interviewee of On Good Authority due to his clarity of thought, knowledge, and presentation. We’ve gathered four of his interviews for this special collection.
This program provides clinicians with the opportunity to:
Learn how to manage engaging parents and assessing violence in children.
Gain an understanding and appreciation of the legal issues involved in domestic violence, as well as how the therapist and attorney can work together on behalf of the victim.
Be able to identify one’s own monetary views and practices.
Recognize the implications of accepting gifts and billing for missed sessions.
Learn to assess suitability for custody through objective facts, rather than subjective opinions.
Custody Evaluation - Robert Galatzer-Levy, M.D.
No one suffers more or has more to lose from a divorce than the children involved. Awarding custody is a crucial issue in helping to minimize the potential damage to these young people. Psychotherapists are increasingly being called upon to render opinions in custody controversies. Dr. Galatzer-Levy provides a clear and sensible approach to doing ethical and professional custody evaluations.
Legal Issues in the Treatment of Domestic Violence - Robert Galatzer-Levy, M.D.
Dr. Galatzer-Levy presents the first steps for a clinician to take in working with a battered woman and explains why many clinicians fail in their treatment of women experiencing domestic violence. Attorney Murphy explains the legal issues involved and how the therapist and attorney can work together on behalf of the victim.
The Assessment of Violent Adolescents - Robert Galatzer-Levy, M.D.
What should we do when presented with a case of a potentially violent child? Certainly we shouldn't assume their behavior and fantasies are understandable and not of concern (as one of the Columbine counselors is reputed to have done). We turn to Dr. Robert Galatzer-Levy, a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst of children, adolescents and adults, for clear and direct advice on what to do and not to do in assessing for violence.
The Meaning of Money - Robert Galatzer-Levy, M.D.
Talking about money with our clients or patients is difficult and often avoided. This can lead to misdiagnosis, premature termination, unresolved transference and countertransference, inconsistencies in payment practices, and undue anxiety. In this interview, Dr. Galatzer-Levy discusses the psychological meaning of money in the therapeutic relationship.
“The speakers did a great job. I love the flexibility of listening at my leisure.”
