Course contents summary
The psychological competence is a multifaceted skill. The psychological intervention presents in fact afferent levels of processes: interpersonal, interpersonal, social, cultural and institutional. The psychological competence can than be represented as a prismatic image
whose different sides are interconnected: the technical and the relational competences, the attention to the context, the self-refllexivity and the social responsibility. In this sense, the different elements that are at the base of a psychological intervention (the setting in its several forms, the unfolding of the clinical dialogue, the analysis of the clients' claim, the client-psychologist relationship) will be declined with respect to the development and the implementation of these different and interrelated levels of competence.
