The efficacy of psychodynamic therapy - Empirical evidence supports the efficacy of psychodynamic (or psychoanalytic) therapy (PDT). Effect sizes for psychodynamic therapy are as large as those reported for other therapies that have been actively promoted as "empirically supported£ and "evidence based". Additionally, patients who receive psychodynamic therapy maintain therapeutic gains and appear to continue to improve after treatment ends. Finally, non-psychodynamic therapies may be effective in part because the more skilled practitioners utilize techniques that have long been central to psychodynamic theory and practice. The perception that psychodynamic approaches lack empirical support does not accord with available scientific evidence and may reflect selective dissemination of research findings.
Keywords: Psychotherapy outcome, psychotherapy process, psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapy (PDT), meta-analysis
