Whereas psychoanalysis and psychodynamic therapy have traditionally avoided focusing too much on specific symptoms or problems--lest they interfere with free association--this new guide articulates the value of more active and symptom-focused interventions. Having worked on focused psychodynamic treatments of panic disorder, depression, trauma, and behavioral change, Fredric Busch, M.D. expands on that work here, articulating how a focused approach can be adapted for patients in general. Drawing on a wealth of case vignettes, the book describes how to apply Problem-Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (PrFPP) to symptoms, personality issues, behavioral problems, and relationship difficulties. It provides novice and experienced clinicians alike with the tools they need to help patients identify problem areas and understand how specific dynamics emerge in different contexts and overlap in contributing to issues. The psychodynamic techniques readers will glean in these pages demonstrate how to rapidly address core difficulties, expanding patients' self-reflective capacities and the identification of their own dynamics--even in the case of short-term interventions.

This manual presents a carefully researched, detailed psychodynamic treatment program for the alleviation of a transdiagnostic range of primary Axis I anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and related psychological problems. First exploring the principles of psychodynamic theory and formulation, the authors then present a three-phased process of Panic Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy-Extended Range (PFPP-XR): initial evaluation, interpretation of central conflicts and defense mechanisms, and termination. Each phase is discussed in depth and relies on central case illustrations to demonstrate techniques and results. A subsequent chapter explores how to address complex issues that may arise during the course of treatment. Altogether, this manual not only provides a demonstrated, adaptable approach for anxiety disorders, but also clearly embodies a spirit of research and empiricism heretofore rare in psychodynamic psychotherapies, with an eye toward future development.

Extensive case material illustrates each stage of therapy, from engagement to termination. Special topics include ways to integrate individual treatment with psychopharmacology and with couple or family work.

"This chapter provides an introduction to efficacious treatments for PTSD. Despite their efficacy, many patients do not respond to these treatments or have persistent symptoms. PTSD psychotherapy treatments used at the VA, including prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, are described. While these treatments can be helpful, many patients are avoidant of trauma processing and homework. Furthermore, both treatments tend to focus on one central trauma, around which to target exposure exercises, whereas most Veterans experience multiple traumas. An overview of the development and framework of Trauma-Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (TFPP), a PTSD symptom focused brief dynamic therapy, is presented. A brief background of psychoanalytic and psychodynamic literature and thinking about trauma is provided to further frame the place of TFPP"--

This volume presents 12 highly instructive case studies grounded in the evidence-based psychodynamic therapy model developed by Richard F. Summers and Jacques P. Barber. Bringing clinical concepts vividly to life, each case describes the patient's history and presenting problems and takes the reader through psychodynamic formulation, treatment planning, and the entire course of therapy, including the challenges of termination. The cases address a variety of core psychodynamic problems, with outcomes ranging from very successful to equivocal. The emotional experience of the therapist is explored throughout. Commentary from Summers and Barber on every case highlights important points and key clinical dilemmas. See also the authored book Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice, in which Summers and Barber comprehensively describe their therapeutic model.
