Many training programmes focus on teaching numerous theories of psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Unfortunately, most people find that this is insufficient for practising psychotherapy. In this course you will be introduced to a modern method of practising psychodynamic psychotherapy, that is fresh, lively and exciting, and very consistent with psychoanalytic principles. The method is based on the work of Fred Busch PhD, who developed it for psychoanalysis. It fits psychodynamic psychotherapy very well. We will use both didactic and experiential methods.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course the participants will be able to:

  1. Be able to practice a new method of psychodynamic psychotherapy.
  2. Become familiar with the empirical literature for this new method.
  3. Differentiate psychodynamic psychotherapy from psychoanalysis.
  4. Name some of the techniques in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
