Psychodynamic psychiatry is broadly defined today. In fact, the term psychodynamic is now used almost synonymously with psychoanalytical. Freud originally used the term psychodynamic to emphasize the conflict between opposing intrapsychic forces: a wish was opposed by a defence, and different intrapsychic agencies, such as ego, id, and superego, were in conflict with one another. Indeed, for much of the twentieth century psychoanalytical theory was dominated by the drive-defence model, often referred to as ego psychology.

In the last decades of the twentieth century, however, the hegemony of ego psychology waned, and other models of the mind gained wide acceptance. Through the influence of Melanie Klein and the British School of object relations, psychoanalytical theory expanded beyond the notion of conflict among intrapsychic agencies. Internal object relations became paramount in models deriving from these sources. In addition, a deficit model of symptomatology arose from the work of the British object-relation theorists, such as Balint and Winnicott. In the United States, Kohut's self-psychology also developed a model based on developmental deficits. In other words, disturbed patients who came to treatment were seen as suffering from absent or weakened psychic structures based on developmental failures by parents or caretakers in the early childhood environment. (See Chapiei,3 2 for an account of the development and modern practice of psychoanalysis.)

As a result of these innovations in psychoanalytical theory, psychodynamic psychiatry is practised today in an era of pluralism. The typical psychodynamic psychiatrist then uses multiple models to assist in the understanding of a particular patient. Moreover, the diagnostic and treatment approach to an individual patient is psychodynamically informed even when a decision has been made to forego psychodynamic psychotherapy. Psychodynamic thinking provides a conceptual framework within which all treatments are prescribed, including pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, inpatient or partial hospital treatment, and group or family modalities. Psychodynamic psychiatry is not synonymous with psychodynamic psychotherapy.

A comprehensive definition of current psychodynamic psychiatry is the following:(1)

Psychodynamic psychiatry is an approach to diagnosis and treatment characterized by a way of thinking about both patient and clinician that includes unconscious conflict, deficits and distortions of intrapsychic structures, and internal object relations.

In this definition emphasis is placed on the presence of two individual psychologies or subjectivities that interact in the field of treatment. Clinicians must recognize that their own unconscious beliefs, biases, and feelings will inevitably influence the way they view the patient.

Funny Wiring Autism

Autism is a developmental disorder that manifests itself in early childhood and affects the functioning of the brain, primarily in the areas of social interaction and communication. Children with autism look like other children but do not play or behave like other children. They must struggle daily to cope and connect with the world around them.
