Psychoanalytic psychotherapy offers the patient the opportunity to get to know how your mind works, both intrapsychic and interpersonal.

Aspects that are discovered in the therapeutic process allow the person to apply new knowledge in their daily lives, providing feelings that were inhibited, denied, modified or absent.

To achieve this , it is very important that the specialist Psychology count with a theoretical reference framework, compression rich in resources and intervention.


Applications of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

A level of understanding, you need to understand the way in which the patient sick, thinking and interpreting how to heal and, on that basis, develop a tailored treatment.

Specialists can not share or models of understanding and approach, but there are differences in the particular style of each analyst: their motivations, their implicit theories, hypotheses deck, and how to give them course to corroborate, or how faces the ethical challenges posed clinical practice.

By implicit theories I mean both the theoretical background supporting professional training, as their personal and professional development: ways of parenting ideals and beliefs that involve, idiosyncrasies, his personal analysis, the authors have read, their supervisions clinics, culture within which is embedded, etc.. All this affects the way they work.

And as to how to put them into play, I mean the style that covers the personal characteristics of character, personality, so to speak, to move, charisma, emotional tone, language, humor, expression, etc.

Another important issue that the analyst has to consider is at what time of the session or treatment (timing) should make an intervention, how and under what will look. The latter involves asking what model of understanding and intervention is more convenient to use:

  • Since a more traditional model? Here it is interpreted to do something repressed conscious.
  • Since a relational look?
  • Or you are thinking that there is a deficit in some of the areas that make its subjective constitution? In this case we must help build what does not exist in your psyche, for example, lacks a level of self - esteem, deficits in attachment, inability to regulate emotionally, lack of resources to establish interpersonal relationships, lack of social or work skills.


When I say I mean how how to approach the intervention. If by the word: choose words that we will enunciate the phrase, the right tone of voice when the patient is living at the time of the session or treatment stage. For example, if a patient who needs vitalization devitalized, perhaps the tone and vitality of the therapist should be more actively enthusiastic. If the patient, however, upset, anxious or aggressive, intervention should be calm with a soft voice and generating a climate of tranquility and calm. In both examples the intervention will tend to balance the scales.

In the speech of the patient have to listen with equal importance the facts of his story, the order in which they appear, the communication mode from which which the patient is connected, the emotional states experienced during the session structural aspects by contents which are processed.

People tend to seek states of ideal self. This state implies a mental representation of the self in relation to an associated affection, where there was an ideal living a way of being with another.

It is important to listen and analyze the roles that the patient comes into play, looking to reproduce those ideals self - states to experience the related affections.

Psychoanalytic therapy Transitar is fascinating, and can extend the field of experiential self, thus improving the quality of life.
