Description

In Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy, Dr. Hanna Levenson demonstrates an attachment-based, empirically supported, brief approach that privileges experiential learning. Time-limited dynamic psychotherapy originated as an interpersonal, time-sensitive approach for clients with chronic, pervasive, dysfunctional ways of relating to others.

This therapy is very focused and requires being attuned to the client; staying aware of one's countertransference; recognizing transference–countertransference reenactments; and providing corrective, interpersonal experiences in the therapy relationship. The goal is not symptom reduction, per se, but rather to change ingrained relational patterns.

In this session, Dr. Levenson works with a woman whose relationship with her second husband seems to echo her relationship with her father. Dr. Levenson helps her to begin to understand the cycle of maladaptive relationships she has cocreated in her life, and instills hope and direction for future work.
