In this presentation Dr. Ruth Schmidt Neven presents an innovative model of time-limited psychodynamic therapy that refutes the assumption that effective psychotherapy needs to be long term. The presentation includes history and research evidence that points to the efficacy of time-limited therapy. It takes as its starting point that the presenting symptom provides the opportunity that enables us to understand how adults ‘speak’ their experience and how children and young people ‘speak’ their family. Using a time-limited conceptual therapeutic framework, Dr. Schmidt Neven emphasizes how we can enhance the dynamic capacity for growth and change, instead of solely focusing on psychopathology. The presentation gives a practical account of the effectiveness of this approach that can promote capacity and insight for adults, children, parents and young people and lead to long term improved mental health.
