Psychodynamic therapy (PDT) is a widely practiced form of psychotherapy for a variety of different problems and disorders. Nevertheless, the concepts and techniques used in PDT are often taught in a way that obscures rather than clarifies their nature. In addition, a gap remains between the theoretical, clinical, and empirical literature of PDT. This webinar presents a series of evidence-based psychodynamic techniques and processes, grounded in coherent theoretical formulations, systematic research, and applied clinical examples. You will also learn about meta-analytic research on the overall efficacy and effectiveness of PDT.
