NRNP 6640-14 Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Introduction

Contemporary psychodynamic psychotherapy, also referred to as psychoanalytic therapy,
is rooted in Dr. Sigmund Freud’s proposal that unconscious thought processes, or thoughts
and feelings outside of our conscious awareness, are responsible for mental health issues.
This therapeutic approach is unique because its goal is to help clients achieve changes in
personality and emotional development. Like most therapeutic approaches, however,
psychodynamic psychotherapy is not appropriate for every client. In your role as a
psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, you must be able to properly assess clients to
determine whether this therapeutic approach would improve their clinical outcomes.
This week, as you explore psychodynamic psychotherapy, you examine the application of
current literature to clinical practice.
