Psychodynamic therapy is based on the premise that individuals are often unaware of many of the factors that determine their emotions and behavior. This type of therapy seeks to help the individual understand the unconscious meaning of troubling symptoms.
The goal of treatment is to change longstanding personality qualities by exploring early childhood experiences that shape personality, unconscious thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
This is the treatment of choice for individuals who wish to most completely understand themselves, and to make profound changes in their ability to understand and relate to others.
