What is a psychodynamic psychotherapist?
It is some ‘trained to work once or twice weekly, generally with the patient/client seated on a chair. Some of the work is with interpretations (making the unconscious part of the mind conscious) and uses the relationship between patient and therapist as the focus, but there is also a focus on everyday life and outside experiences. The theory base is psychoanalytic'. In intercultural psychodynamic approach elements such as race, ethnicity, gender, class, nationality, disability, religion, age among of other categories that formatted us is important to consider.
