    The Art and Science of Psychotherapy

    by Ronald Teague, Ph.D., ABPP

    Ever since its creation Psychodynamic psychotherapy has been controversial. Over the years many objections to the theory and practice of these treatment methods have been raised by social scientists and mental health professionals. It has been asserted that there has been no real proof advanced to support the claims of psychodynamic practitioners that psychodynamic psychotherapy is indeed effective. Psychodynamic psychotherapy thus has been criticized for not being and evidence based treatment.

    This course will show that there is ample empirical evidence that indeed psychodynamic psychotherapy is effective and useful for the treatment of many mental disorders.

    About the Presenter:  Ronald Teague, Ph.D., ABPP has been in professional practice for over 40 years.  During that time he has directed substance abuse centers in Central California, been the Chief of Psychological Services in both in-patient and outpatient hospital departments and has a private practice in clinical psychology and psychoanalysis. He is skilled and experienced in treating a wide range of emotional and mental disorders.  Additionally he has supervised and trained psychologists and other mental health professionals in his capacity as Founding Graduate Professor of Clinical Psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University.  Currently, he has expanded his practice to include International Psychology, consulting weekly with psychologists and psychiatrists in China, England, Germany, Korea, Spain and Ethiopia. He is the author of numerous publications and a distinguished invited lecturer.  Dr. Teague’s credentials include: PhD, California School of Professional Psychology-San Francisco, 1973, California License Psy004586, certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology in the areas of Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis in Psychology, Fellow-American Academy of Clinical Psychology and American Academy of Psychoanalysis and Registrant - National Register of Health Care Providers in Psychology.

    And in his own words…

    Ronald Teague is a founding faculty of the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University.  He has continuously been teaching Graduate Students since 1974.  He was the founder of the Fresno, Sacramento and Hong Kong Campuses.  He is Board Certified in both Clinical Psychology and Psychoanalysis in Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.  He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Psychology and the American Academy of Psychoanalysis.  He yearly travels to China to train psychologists and psychiatrists as well as Primary Care Physicians.  He maintains an active private practice in Sacramento and routinely trains mental health professionals in various locations throughout the world using distance technology.  He is thinking about writing a book on the need for a Transcultural Perspective in Clinical Psychology as well as methods to treat disorders caused by conflicts in the Cultural Unconscious, but he really hasn’t done much about this which is typical for him as he prefers to natter on about topics of interest to him but he really doesn’t like to do the hard research which would be necessary to write a book.  He is either an Introvert or a high functioning Asperger’s, depending on one’s theoretical orientation.  He has been called a ‘polymath’ by the past Dean of CSPP, but he isn’t sure if this is a complement or not.
