    Because it is comprehensive and depth-oriented, psychodynamic psychotherapy is hard to master. However, based on decades of research and theoretical advancements, we can now identify key therapy skills. In this webinar, experts in dynamic therapy and deliberate practice will join forces to help attendees master some of these psychodynamic skills. Included in this webinar:

    • A list of key skills all therapists interested in psychodynamic therapy should learn.
    • A sample DP exercise you can use solo or with a partner.
    • Strategies for overcoming common challenges in learning psychodynamic therapy.
    • Cultivating patience and compassion for yourself in learning psychodynamic therapy.

    There is a common misconception that the benefits of psychoanalytic psychotherapies are not supported by empirical evidence. This misconception is directed most forcefully toward psychoanalysis. While psychotherapy is becoming a widely accepted and respected approach to dealing with psychological and relationship problems, as well as the stresses of modern life, psychoanalysis may not be utilized as much as it could or should be. Especially for complicated and deeply entrenched psychological disorders, psychoanalysis may be the treatment of choice. However, the frequency of sessions, extended duration, and associated cost require that empirical evidence of the unique benefits of psychoanalysis be demonstrated. Process/Outcome research on psychoanalysis will be presented. You can draw your own conclusions as to whether the time commitment and cost justifies recommending psychoanalysis to treat some mental health conditions.
