Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic Therapy involves a long-term process of identifying the dynamics of an individual’s life that are effecting his or her current functioning. These dynamics include ones relationship with parents, other people, and his or herself. The primary focus of psychodynamic therapy is to reveal the unconscious content of a client’s psyche in an effort to alleviate internal tension. It also relies on the interpersonal relationship between client and therapist. By examining the process of what is happening between the client and the therapist, clients are able to better understand some of the ways their interactions with others have created problems or successes in their lives. The client is then able to take what they have learned in session and apply it so that he or she can improve relationships with their family and friends.
