Treatment

All forms of psychotherapy – psychodynamic (psychoanalysis), behavioural and cognitive have been shown to reduce distress and to promote physical and psychological wellbeing (Mumford, Schlesinger, & Glass, 1983; Sobel, 1995).

Psychodynamic treatment takes longer than other therapeutic methods such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), DBT (Dialectical behavior therapy), Exposure Therapy, or EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

Those receiving psychodynamic treatment are more likely to maintain therapeutic gains and appear to continue to improve after treatment ends (Shedler, 2010).  There is a growing body of scientific evidence showing the efficacy of a psychodynamic approach.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are sometimes referred to as “talk therapy”.
