Psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapies are scientifically validated approaches that tend to focus on the self and relational issues underlying symptoms and distress, as opposed to targeting symptoms directly.
Psychoanalytic theories have historically provided rich ideas to understand the self and relational world of the client. Treatment focuses on cognition, emotion, experience, needs and the interpersonal dimensions of the client’s difficulties. Interpersonal relationships—both with the therapist and others–are explored to understand and change how clients experience themselves and relate to others in interpersonal relationships.
This 12-hour introductory workshop will provide both theory and applied considerations for practice to allow mental health professionals to integrate psychoanalytic/psychodynamic ideas into their clinical practice.
Information about the Facilitator
Dr. Dino Zuccarini, C.Psych. is a clinical psychologist and Co-Founder of the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships (CFIR Ottawa and Toronto), which provides 25 treatment and 17 assessment services to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. He is a proponent of the idea that no ‘one therapy’ modality fits all clients.
A clinician’s capacity to conceptualize and utilize applied interventions from different treatment modalities provides clinicians with greater flexibility and more tools to address different client needs, preferences and in-session goals. Psychodynamic and psychoanalytic perspectives are essential to understand the developmental aspects of our clients’ current distress.
