What is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy?
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is very similar to the psychoanalytic sessions that most people think of when they think about going to counseling. There is a subtle but very important difference though. Where the focus in psychoanalytic therapy is on building the relationship between therapist and patient, in psychodynamic psychotherapy the primary goal is helping the client build a relationship with themselves and the world around them.
What Advantages Does Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Offer?
While there is no guarantee and psychodynamic psychotherapy can last for a considerable length of time it is generally much quicker to have the desired effects than traditional psychotherapy. Beyond this, because it teaches people to recognize and analyze their own behavioral patterns and unconscious thought processes, it better equips them to adapt to a changing world without the need to resort to further therapy.
