Brief Psychodynamic Therapies
Classical psychoanalysis is an expensive and time consuming process
There is no evidence that long-term classical analysis yields better therapeutic
outcomes than briefer forms of psychodynamic therapy
Brief psychodynamic psychotherapies emphasize understanding the maladaptive
influences of the past and relating them to current patterns of self-defeating behaviours.
Many of these therapies utilize basic concepts from psychoanalysis, but they employ
them in a more focused and active fashion
Therapist and client usually speak face to face, and this communication replaces free
association
Clients are seen less frequently and the goal is to help the client deal with specific life
problems rather than attempting to rebuild their personality
This therapy would focus on the client’s current life situation and teach them skills to
cope rather than analyzing childhood
One example of brief psychodynamic therapy is interpersonal therapy focuses on
the client’s current interpersonal problems, which include dealing with role disputes,
adjusting to the loss of a relationship or to a changed relationship, and
identifying/correcting deficits in social skills.
Interpersonal therapy has been proven to be one of the more effective therapies for
depression
Humanistic Psychotherapies:
Humanistic theorists view humans as capable of consciously controlling their actions
and taking responsibility for their choices and behaviour
They also believed that people possess inner resources for self-healing and personal
growth, and disordered behaviour reflects a blockage of this natural resource.
This blocking is brought about by distorted perceptions, lack of awareness about
feelings, or a negative self-image.
Therapist’s goal is to create an environment in which clients can engage in self-personal
growth and to remove the barriers that block their natural tendencies towards personal
growth
Focuses primarily on the present and future instead of the fast
Client-Centered Therapy:
The best-known and most widely used form of humanistic therapy, which was
developed by Carl Rogers
Roger’s research/experience as a therapist identified 3 important and interrelated
therapist attributes:
1. Unconditional positive regard communicated when therapists show clients that
they genuinely care about and accepts them, without judgment or evaluation. The
therapist also communicates trust in regards to the client’s ability to recover.

Unconditional positive regard communicated when therapists show clients that they genuinely care about and accepts them, without judgment or evaluation. The therapist also communicates trust in regards to the clients ability to recover. 2. Empathy willingness/ability to view the world through the clients eyes. 3. Genuineness must be consistency between the way the therapist feels and they way he/she behaves. Rogers believed that when a therapist can express these 3 attributes, they create a situation in which the client feels accepted, understood, and free to explore attitudes/feelings without fear of being judged. Rogers believed that, as clients experience a constructive therapeutic relationship, they exhibit increased self-acceptance, greater self-awareness, enhanced self-reliance, increased comfort with other relationships, and improved life functioning.
