Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is a form of therapy focusing on the unconscious mind. Developed by Sigmund Freud, this approach encourages clients to examine past experiences and become aware of unresolved conflicts. For example, if a client is addicted to gambling, a psychodynamic psychotherapist might ask him to explore how his early relationships or his family’s financial problems while growing up have contributed to his current risk-taking behaviors with money.
