Not Your Grandma’s Freud! A Fresh Look at Psychodynamic Theory and Practice

A psychodynamic approach to treatment has fallen out of favor with much of the field as ‘evidence based practices’ are touted as more effective, and quicker, and are pushed by insurance companies. But many clients do not seem to be helped by CBT and other such practices alone. An understanding of how modern psychodynamic therapy works will expand treatment options, dispel misconceptions, and increase our ability to help a wider spectrum of people.

This interactive training will help participants understand the evidence behind the effectiveness of psychodynamic treatment. Mental health professions will learn how psychodynamic theory has changed in recent years. Participants will examine some of the common current treatment strategies and will learn the benefits of a time-limited dynamic treatment approach.  (Trainer, Erik Hadden, MA, LCPC, Vital Sources Psychological Services)
