Psychodynamic (or psychoanalytic) theory proposes that events in childhood have a great influence on adult lives. Events that occur in childhood experiences shape adult personality and can remain subconscious while causing distress and maladaptive behaviour in adulthood until they are resolved. Schema therapy is also based on the view that maladaptive themes or patterns of behaviour that we keep on repeating throughout life are related to the way we formed core beliefs about ourselves and the world since childhood. In clinical practice, we make inevitable observations that a person’s painful experiences in childhood and adolescence, such as trauma or repeated abuse, have clear consequences on their adult life. Indeed, we inadvertently ‘live in past’ more often than we may realise. MiCBT takes these principles into consideration within the framework of phenomenology; it examines these phenomena as they manifest themselves dynamically, in the present moment, through principals such as ‘transference’. It integrates the dynamics of present-moment experience by looking at how learned behaviour takes place and affects our beliefs and behaviour since childhood.
However, MiCBT does not assume that psychodynamic problems can be resolved by simply being aware of them. In contrast, it suggests that underlying brain mechanisms associated with autobiographical memory are the principal determinants of maintaining painful memories and unhelpful behaviour present in our life.
This masterclass will describe the learning, maintenance and extinction of important psychodynamic principles through the co-emergence model of reinforcement and supporting evidence from neuroscience. It will also discuss a more pragmatic way of understanding and addressing psychodynamic issues that your clients experience on a daily basis. It will also describe how rapport can be improved with our clients when transference is recognised and address constructively.
