Psychodynamic psychiatry and neurobiology


Boeker, Heinz (2020). Psychodynamic psychiatry and neurobiology. Swiss Archives of Neurology, Psychiatry and Psychotherapy, 171(5):138-139.

Abstract

The historical development of psychodynamic psychiatry and its core principles were focussed on in the perspective of current research, especially of neuroscientific research. The three-dimensional model of psychodynamic and neuro-psychodynamic psychiatry and spatiotemporal psychopathology are described and applied to depression and schizophrenia as clinical examples underlining the practical relevance of the neuro-psychodynamic approach for psychiatric treatment and psychotherapy. Operationalized psychodynamic diagnostics (OPD) is discussed as an "instrument to transfer psychodynamic constructs into neuroscience".

Keywords: : Psychodynamic psychiatry, neurosciences, three-dimensional model, spatiotemporal psychopathology, depression, schizophrenia, Operationalized Psychodynamic Diagnostics (OPD), therapeutic attitude
