“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?
 
This presentation will offer an overview of the evidence base for psychodynamic psychotherapy (PP) effectiveness. I will discuss what defines an intervention as “evidence-based,” highlight meta-analytic short and long-term PP outcome data and quality review articles showing the progress of PP study design. I will also take a critical look at the limitations of psychotherapy research in terms of real-world applicability with the goal of leaving you more knowledgeable, comfortable, and confident in your thinking about the achievements and limitations of PP research and outcomes.

Discussant: Barnett Kaplan, M.D.
“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.
