Intensive Short–Term Dynamic Psychotherapy offers theoretical, metapsychological and technical knowledge which can be used with extraordinary precision to gain access to the psychopathological dynamic forces responsbile for the patient′s symptoms and character disturbances. Many years of research and clinical experience with this method, using video technology as a research tool, has shown that even a single interview produces major mobilization of the unconscious and a unique opportunity for both therapist and patient to have a direct view of the pathogenic organization of the unconscious responsible for the patient′s disturbances.
These papers, collected from the published articles of Doctor Davanloo, with their extensive in–depth analyses of clinical cases, illustrate some of the recent developments in Intensive Short–Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.
