Neurotic? Good news: You might live longer

To some people, the word "neurotic" can conjure images of a certain type of psychotherapy: Woody Allen types splayed out on long divans, with Freudian therapists sitting coolly behind them, asking vague questions about Oedipal complexes.

Abstract Despite evidence that cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is effective, some individuals do not experience clinically significant reduction or remission of their PTSD symptoms. These individuals may return for additional PTSD-focused psychotherapy. However, there is no research to know whether PTSD treatment repeaters have worse symptoms prior to the initial treatment episode or display differences in other pretreatment characteristics versus nonrepeaters. Research is also needed to explore whether treatment repeaters exhibit PTSD symptom changes during an initial o...

Abstract Relapse following response in psychotherapy for major depressive disorder (MDD) is a major concern. Emotion regulation (ER) has been discussed as a putative emerging and maintaining factor for depression. The purpose of the present study was to examine whether ER protects against recurrence of depression over and above residual symptoms of depression following inpatient care for MDD. ER skills (ERSQ-ES) and depression (HEALTH-49) were assessed in 193 patients with MDD (age, M = 47.4, SD = 9.6, 75.1% female, 100% Caucasian) at treatment discontinuation, 3 and 12 months after treatment. Multiple hierarchica...

I see my follow-ups for 30-minutes, and I'm having a hard time seeing in my mind how I don't end up billing most of my follow-up visits as level 4 (99214) visits with a psychotherapy add-on code (90833). I am doing psychotherapy for more than 16 minutes with most of my patients, and if you look at the criteria for a level 4, it's hard not to hit that threshold. Legitimately, any patient with 3 chronic illnesses (e.g, MDD, Anxiety NOS, Insomnia) is a level 4 visit: E.g., 3 stable illnesses... Billing for Med management &Psychotherapy - 99214 + 90833

CONCLUSIONS: CEE is best represented by a preliminary model that depicts two parallel yet interacting change processes. Intrapersonal change process is similar to the sequence of change described by the emotional processing model (Pascual-Leone &Greenberg, ), whereas interpersonal change process is a unique contribution of this study. Interpersonal change process was facilitated when the therapist's active stance and use of immediacy responses to make their relational process explicit allowed a shared exploration. Therapist affirmation bridged intrapersonal change to interpersonal change by promoting an adaptive sense ...

Abstract The purpose of this study was to bridge the methodologies of significant events and micro‐process research to gain a better understanding of clients’ perceptions of helpful and hindering events in psychotherapy. A total of 16 clients were asked to review a recent psychotherapy session and, while watching, complete a moment‐by‐moment rating of helpful/hindrance using a dial rating system. They were also asked to describe the most helpful and hindering segments that were rated as such. The moment‐by‐moment ratings suggest that clients perceive a significant amount of variability within a single sessi...

AbstractWomen have greater vulnerability to alcohol problems than men. They become intoxicated after drinking half as much as men, develop cirrhosis of the liver more rapidly, and have a greater risk of dying from alcohol-related accidents. Despite more serious consequences related to their drinking, treatment for women with alcohol use disorders has been understudied relative to treatment for men. Intensive motivational interviewing (IMI) is a recent psychotherapeutic intervention for substance abuse problems that draws on the principles of brief motivational interviewing (1 –2 session). However, the intervention in...

The present paper constructs a practical conceptual bridge between reading and psychoanalysis across the divide of one‐ and two‐person psychologies. Using literary examples from the writings of Samuel Beckett that correspond to the working through of internalized traumatic experience, the paper links contemporary psychoanalytic concepts including Bion's containercontained and Bollas’ evocative object, with the small grained ‘d’ arrivals embedded within the larger movements of the psychological shuttle between P/SD. These clarifications of meaning are discernible both within psychoanalysis and in evocative reading.

The Piggle, in its 40th anniversary year, was published after Winnicott's death. He treated this 2‐year 4‐month‐old girl over two and a half years. Yet, until recently, The Piggle has been ambivalently reviewed and minimally studied, despite elegant posthumous papers, a recent introduction to Winnicott's collected works and an interview with the ‘Piggle’ in adulthood. We show that Winnicott's technique and interpretations fall into three categories: (1) early Kleinian ‘deep’ interpretations; (2) an Anna Freudian approach with developmental considerations, respect for defences, the analyst as a...
