In the second episode of our psychotherapy series, we will discuss supportive and psychodynamic therapy. To illustrate principles of supportive and psychodynamic therapy, we will do a role play and then afterward, use the role play to explore the difference between supportive and dynamic approaches to the situation. We will discuss how to use reflections and validations in your interviews with patients, and we will also explore key concepts in psychodynamic therapy including defense mechanisms, transference, countertransference, and more!
