Example text

Yet there is more to how the psychodynamic listener functions, at least within the psychotherapeutic situation. In an evaluation, the assessment of many clinical moments, in conjunction with the more usual taking of a history, may be enough to reach a clinical conclusion and make a recommendation. In ongoing psychodynamic therapy, the therapist experiences clinical moment after clinical moment, and all of this takes place within a special context. For in psychodynamic psychotherapy, the therapist is pulled by the patient into the patient’s world—or at least a simulated microcosm of that world, within the four walls of the therapy consulting room.

Psychotherapy, the “talking cure,” is the medical treatment directed toward changing behavior through verbal means. Through talk, psychotherapy provides understanding, support, and new experiences that can result in learning. The goal of all psychotherapies is to increase the range of behaviors available to the patient and in this way relieve symptoms and alter patterns that have created increased morbidity and potential mortality. A broad and comprehensive view of health and disease is needed to understand the relationship between behavior and health.
