Description
Pragmatic psychodynamic psychotherapy (PPP) is a jargon-free synthesis of essential psychodynamic concepts the presenters use in teaching and bridging the gap between research and practice. In this intermediate workshop, evidence supporting the key elements of PPP, such as therapeutic alliance, core psychodynamic problem, formulation and strategies for facilitating change, is presented, and data supporting the efficacy of dynamic therapy is reviewed. Presenters illustrate these ideas with an edited video of the arc of psychotherapy of a patient with panic.
Learning Objectives
1. Comprehend the various kinds of clinical data that comprise evidence-based practice and the evidence base supporting psychodynamic psychotherapy.
2. Diagnose core psychodynamic problems and develop a psychodynamic formulation for appropriate patients.
3. Develop an effective therapeutic alliance, define a focus of therapy, and employ techniques for facilitating change.
4. Recognize the important role of positive emotion and character strengths in the therapeutic alliance, core psychodynamic problems, therapeutic moments, and termination.
