THE EFFICACY OF PSYCHOANALYTIC PSYCHOTHERAPY: A LECTURE AND CLINICAL WORKSHOP
About this Event
WCSPP Annual Conference

4 CE CREDITS AVAILABLE

Keynote speaker: Jonathan Shedler, PhD

Moderated by: John Turtz, PhD

Dr. Shedler will conduct live supervision sessions with Melissa Capozzi, LCSW and Matthew Korner, PsyD


Overview

Psychodynamic therapy is an evidence-based treatment. In the first half of the lecture — based on the internationally acclaimed article, The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy — Dr. Shedler will describe the seven core features of contemporary psychodynamic psychotherapy in clear, jargon-free language.

Dr. Shedler will discuss scientific evidence for the benefits of psychodynamic therapy and how it compares to other evidence-based treatments like CBT and antidepressant Medic*tion. Dr. Shedler will also describe how the active ingredients of all effective psychotherapies draw on (often unacknowledged) psychodynamic principles, such as enhancing self-knowledge, identifying problematic relationship patterns, and addressing these patterns in the “here and now” of the therapy relationship.

The second half of the conference program will have a practical, hands-on clinical focus, building on concepts from Dr. Shedler’s lecture. Participants will develop a deeper understanding of contemporary psychodynamic therapy through clinical case presentations by workshop participants with case discussion, “live” clinical supervision, and role playing to demonstrate clinical interventions. Dr. Shedler will emphasize the role of clinical case formulation as a road map to effective psychodynamic treatment.

Since our origins, WCSPP has been dedicated to an open exchange of ideas and dialogue. Our faculty represents diverse perspectives on human development and psychotherapeutic techniques.
