Research output: Contribution to journalArticleOtherpeer-review


The aim of this paper was to assess the value of a psychodynamic formulation masterclass. Method: Formal feedback from the presenters at a masterclass at the 2010 RANZCP Congress was obtained and arranged under different themes. Results: The importance of counter-transference, reevaluating the case and supervision, witnessing the skill of an expert, the sense of containment and validation, and the importance of formulation were significant themes that emerged. Conclusions: The results provided evidence both for the importance of psychodynamic formulation and for the use of a psychodynamic formulation masterclass.
