This video, “A Case for Psychoanalysis: Exploring the Scientific Evidence”, is a summary of the evidence for psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The video is a good introduction to the large body of evidence that shows the efficacy of Psychoanalytic therapy.
Here is an excerpt of a key result on the evidence for psychoanalytic psychotherapy>
- Antidepressant medications, the most common treatment for those struggling with mood has an effect size of .31, which is generally considered a small to moderate effect.
- Looking at these studies, the effect size of psychoanalytic treatments ranges from .59 to 2.21.
- In addition,there is growing evidence that psychoanalytic treatments differentiate themselves in that the benefits from psychoanalytic treatment tend to continue to grow after the treatment ends, while benefits from other treatments such as medications and CBT generally decay after treatment.
