BRIEF PSYCHOTHERAPY: A PSYCHOANALYTIC VIEW

BRIEF PSYCHOTHERAPY: A PSYCHOANALYTIC VIEW ROBERT D. GILLMAN M.D. 1 1 3000 Connecticut Avenue, Washington, D. C. A substantial number of outpatients can be helped by brief interpretive psychotherapy based on the application of psychoanalytic understanding. These patients are suffering acute reactions or recent exacerbations of chronic problems. The therapist uses his psychoanalytic training and experience to understand as quickly as possible the central problem and sets limited goals directed to those conditions which necessitated the symptoms. Seven cases are presented representing a wide range of psychopathology. There is a discussion of the therapeutic factors involved that make for enduring improvement. It is hoped that this presentation will challenge others to consider the application of psychoanalytic principles to brief therapy in outpatient settings. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Psychiatry American Psychiatric Publishing, Inc (Journal)
