As there has been a significant increase in demand for mental health services and a requirement for economical ‘less is more treatment approaches’, skills in brief, focused therapies are becoming necessary. With Psychodynamic Therapy noted for its emphasis on the unconscious, transferences, childhood patterns, and defense mechanisms, one might wonder how it could be adapted to be an effective brief therapy. Yet, Brief Psychodynamic Therapy (TLDP) is proving to be an important adjunct to any integrated practitioner’s armory. This workshop is an opportunity to understand and enjoy its historical and theoretical development, methods, and applications.
Course participants will learn the criteria to differentiate between those clients who will and will not benefit from Brief Psychodynamic Therapy and to make an informed assessment and diagnosis that guides the focus of the TLDP. Participants will also become acquainted with the beginning, middle, and end phases of this form of therapy and the requirements and role of the therapist in each phase. Included will be the various options available at the end of therapy such as onward referral, continuing, ending etc., and considerations as to which is most suitable for each client.
In addition to case studies, participants will have the opportunity to work in small groups to make an assessment. In order to maximize active learning, groups will formulate questions and goals for the ‘client’ (portrayed by the presenter, based on case material), and feedback will be provided by the presenter and course participants.

Dr Ari Badaines trained as a clinical psychologist in the USA and received a post-doctoral National Institute of Mental Health fellowship in Washington, DC. Ari has been a consultant to numerous organisations including Relate in the UK, Richmond Fellowship and Youth-in-Search in Australia. He has taught at various universities in the USA, UK, and Australia including ACU and ACAP in Sydney and has also led workshops in over twenty countries. Ari has been in private practice for over 45 years. The main theoretical orientation of his training was psychodynamic psychotherapy, and he had many years of supervised, clinical practice, including a one year pre-doctoral internship at a psycho-analytic training institute in New York. As the demands for therapy grew, the ‘payer’ (governments, insurance companies, clients) demanded more parsimonious approaches, Ari undertook trainings to develop the skills for TLDP. He currently maintains a private practice in Sydney, consults to treatment organisations and supervises other therapists; he is a popular presenter for PDP and runs trainings in the UK and Europe twice a year

”Most therapists have been aware that there is something happening in the client/therapist relationship that engenders thought and feeling in each. This transference, assessment and a focussed direction are the cornerstones of Psychodynamic Therapy. This workshop is designed to enhance your therapeutic outcomes in the context of ‘Brief’ Therapy.” Dr Ari Badaines
