“Psychodynamic Therapy: A Discussion of the Evidence"
What is the current state of evidence for psychodynamic interventions?
Is it true that there is a paucity of evidence? Is it true that the existing evidence is of inferior quality?
Michael Pauly, MD is a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst in private practice in Seattle. He is a faculty member and instructor at SPSI and a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Washington. His interests include psychoanalytic education and the exploration of the evidence base for psychoanalytic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
“Psychoanalysis: Art or Science”
My discussion takes up the age-old question of what factors contribute to successful outcomes in psychoanalytic and psychodynamic treatment. I will review several outcome studies of psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy to see what these studies may have to teach us in this regard.
SPSI Scientific Sessions are free to attendees, but seating may be limited.
