Author information

  • 1Department of Psychiatry, Harvard School of Medicine, Cambridge, MA, USA.


Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a major therapeutic modality for adults and children. It covers a number of related therapies based on psychoanalytic concepts and models. In this paper, we address new developments in thinking and practice, recent changes relating to teaching, and new findings from research and developmental science. A child case is presented to illustrate the complexity of arriving at a diagnosis and treatment.
