Gibbard Lecture: The Efficacy of Psychodynamic Therapy: The Talking Cure in the Era of Evidence-Based Practice

Psychodynamic therapy is an evidence-based treatment. Effect sizes are as large as those for other therapies that are actively promoted as "empirically supported" or "evidence-based", and patients who receive psychodynamic therapy not only maintain therapeutic gains, but continue improving after treatment ends. Research also shows that other forms of therapy may be effective in part because the more skilled practitioners incorporate psychodynamic methods. Dr. Shedler will discuss the seven key features of contemporary psychodynamic treatment, review empirical evidence from randomized controlled trials and meta-analyses, and discuss how psychodynamic therapy compares to other evidence-based treatments such as CBT and antidepressant medication. No registration is required.

Gibbard Workshop: Personality Pathways to Depression: A Clinical Conversation with Dr. Jonathan Shedler

It has become increasingly common to refer to depression as a "disease", but it may be more helpful to view it as a nonspecific symptom--the psychic equivalent of fever--of a wide range of underlying disturbances. For most patients, these disturbances are rooted in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling, attaching, coping, defending, relating and experiencing self and others--in other words, in personality. This seminar will focus on common personality pathways to depression and their practical treatment implications, with discussion of clinical case material and clinical vignettes to demonstrate case formulation and treatment strategies. Attendance and clinical affiliation will be recorded. There is no charge to participants.
