MGH Psychiatry Academy: Patient and Family Resource Center

The Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Psychiatry and the MGH Center for Psychodynamic Therapy invite you to attend the patient and family education program How Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Can Help: The Role of Insight-Oriented Treatments.

This exciting event will provide an opportunity for individuals coping with emotional and interpersonal difficulties, their family, friends, treaters and others to learn about psychodynamic psychotherapy and become actively involved in the treatment of someone they care about. This event offers important clinical expertise from academic clinicians. We will share our vision of modern psychodynamic therapies that are patient-centered and oriented towards relief of emotional distress and improved satisfaction in one’s relationships.


Morning Agenda

Presenters will discuss the benefits of individual psychodynamic psychotherapy for exploring and addressing life’s challenges in a unique manner. Presenters will also discuss treatments for couples looking to improve their relationships. The program will also feature a panel of patients speaking about their experiences with psychotherapy.

Afternoon Agenda

Presenters will discuss the use of group psychotherapy to address interpersonal challenges and the experience of combining psychotherapy with medication management.

This program is made possible through the generosity of the MGH Endowment for the Advancement of Psychotherapy.
