Sample text

She complained of anxiety and a strong need to please and care for her parents and children during their frequent vacations, family occasions, and holidays. Joan was uncomfortable discussing this problem because she felt she was a good daughter and mother, and it was confusing for her to regard the need to please as a problem. But at the same time she knew there was something excessively pressured in her need to care for her family in these circumstances. Through her psychotherapy, Joan recognized her conflicted wishes for love and closeness with her mother, and her sadness and loneliness when she felt abandoned by mother during her periods of depression.

A lbert E instein Pragmatic psychodynamic psychotherapy (PPP) is based on a develop- mental and conflict model of mental life and involves clearly defined psychodynamic diagnosis and formulation, a focus on education and transparency, integration with other synergistic treatment modalities, and an active, engaged therapeutic stance. It differs from classical psychodynamic psychotherapy, which has tended to be open ended, hierarchical, not diagnosis specific, inadequately integrated conceptually and technically with psychopharmacology and other concurrent treatments, less active, and less focused.

This seems quite simple, but it was not how prior generations of psychodynamic practitioners were taught. Identifying the core problem allows the therapist to anticipate the typical descriptive characteristics of the problem and quickly consider the common psychodynamics that go with each. Treatment goals, dilemmas in developing the therapeutic alliance, specific therapy techniques, and common transference and countertransference reactions all revolve around the core problem. If you know the core problem, you will know what to expect in each of these areas, and the road map for the treatment will be quite clear.
