Psychodynamic Therapy


Psychodynamic therapy is often considered an in-depth therapy that focuses on exploring the unconscious processes that affect the client’s personality and behavior. The goal of psychodynamic therapy is insight: increasing awareness and gaining an understanding of the effects of the past on one’s present life. it attempts to address the root causes of emotional problems rather than deal with the symptoms only. Painful feelings and memories that were once too difficult to handle were pushed into the unconscious leading to the development of defenses and conflicts. The goal is to delve into the unconscious believed to hold the key to the problem, where conflicts can be explored and resolved. Psychodynamic therapists use a wide range of techniques that can include free association, dream analysis, discussing past experiences, identifying recurring themes and patterns in the client’s life, and focusing on the client’s contradictory emotions and feelings.
