Description

All Talk – No (Therapeutic) Action: Expanding the Psychoanalytic Model of Change

Traditionally, psychoanalysts and other psychotherapists train in and practice a single approach. Based on a multidisciplinary model of therapeutic change, Dr. Frank takes the position that it is unnecessarily and artificially limiting to follow one therapeutic approach exclusively. Several currently popular nonanalytic approaches, such as Cognitive-Behavioral, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Sensorimotor psychotherapies, each brilliant in its own right and developed independently, have progressively converged with one another and with psychoanalysis. Through theoretical exploration of these models we will examine how unitary approaches can be combined into an expanded psychoanalytically-based model of therapeutic action, and will illustrate the application of this model through a case study.


Kenneth A. Frank, PhD is one of the founders of NIP and Co-Director of its Psychotherapy Integration Training Program. He is formerly Clinical Professor in Psychiatry, Columbia University in the City of New York, is on numerous institute faculties, and is Senior Consulting Editor of Psychoanalytic Perspectives. Much of his work falls at the intersection of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy integration. He has completed two books (with a third in progress), lectures internationally, and has published more than 60 papers, mostly in psychoanalytic journals, with many devoted to the topic he will discuss.
