Psychodynamics at Work
Working within a psychodynamic context the therapist looks at the client’s past and sees how this influences their present situation to find what is at the basis of their presenting issue(s). A purely Freudian approach maintains that despite the fact an individual might repress early memories the “Id” does not. However this strategy is not accepted by all exponents of psychodynamic therapy. All psychodynamic approaches do however work in reference to the client’s personality and their personal history.
