OBJECTIVE: This article reports results of a pilot study of three participants receiving regulation-focused psychotherapy for children (RFP-C), a manualized, short-term, psychodynamic treatment for children with oppositional defiant disorder and other externalizing problems. RFP-C targets implicit emotion regulation while using an intensive, psychodynamic, play therapy approach to decrease the child's need for disruptive behaviors. METHODS: Three children with oppositional defiant disorder participated in a trial of RFP-C...

This article reports on a research project investigating psychology graduate students' experiences of Y model psychotherapy training at an Australian university. Focus group interviews were conducted with clinical psychology students (N=20), and thematic analysis was used to capture core aspects of their training experience. Participants felt that the dual training in cognitive-behavioral therapy and psychodynamic therapy gave them a significant advantage over students trained in only a single approach. Notwithstanding the perceived benefits of their training, participants emphasized how intellectually and emotionally demanding it was...

A case of a 54-year-old woman with posttraumatic stress disorder, somatic delusions, and borderline personality disorder is presented by using psychodynamic, trauma-informed, and cognitive-behavioral formulations. The usefulness of a multifaceted formulation in the treatment of the case is discussed along with a review of relevant literature.

OBJECTIVE: This article aims to articulate the use of trauma-focused psychodynamic psychotherapy (TFPP) for a 33-year-old U.S. Army veteran with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in a Veterans Affairs (VA) setting. METHODS: The patient was treated with TFPP, a manualized brief psychotherapy provided as part of a pilot study. TFPP differs from traditional dynamic psychotherapies in its focus on symptoms of trauma and associated dynamics. The patient was seen for an initial 60-minute intake session and then for 16 50-minute sessions over 5...

People with schizophrenia spectrum disorder face a major challenge in the ability to reflect on their own and others' mental activities and about specific psychological problems in their lives. These deficits are associated with increased symptoms and lower functioning. Specific interventions have been designed to enhance these abilities, one of which is metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT). Several case studies and a recent pilot study have shown increased metacognitive abilities and a decrease in symptoms among clients after MERIT...

A persecutory delusion (PD) is a person's false belief that others are focusing their attention on him or her with malevolent intentions, which often results in intense anxiety and significant disruption of daily life. PDs are common in schizophrenia, and many patients with schizophrenia do not respond well to current pharmacological treatments. Therefore, effective psychological treatments are needed. The most well-known intervention for PDs continues to be cognitive-behavioral therapy. It aims to reduce patients' stigma and then help them to question the delusional meaning they attribute to events...

Schizophrenia often involves a loss of metacognitive capacity, the ability to form complex and integrated representations of self and others. Independent of symptoms and neurocognition, deficits in synthetic metacognition are related to difficulties engaging in goal-directed activities in social and vocational settings. Against this backdrop, the authors provide a case report of the effects of metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT) provided over the course of seven months to assist a client with persistent schizophrenia...

Decrements in metacognitive functioning, or the ability to form complex and integrated representations of oneself and others, have been identified as a core feature of schizophrenia. These deficits have been observed to be largely independent of the severity of psychopathology and neurocognitive functioning and are linked to poor outcomes for those with the disorder. This study is a case illustration of the efficacy of metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT) in increasing the metacognitive capacity of an individual diagnosed as having co-occurring schizophrenia and a substance use disorder during three years of individual therapy...

Despite historically pessimistic views from both the professional community and lay public, research is emerging that recovery from psychosis is possible. Recovery has evolved to include not only a reduction in symptoms and return to functioning, but a sense of agency and connection to meaningful roles in life. The development of a more comprehensive conceptualization of recovery has particular importance in the treatment of first-episode psychosis, because early intervention may avoid some of the prolonged dysfunction that may make recovery difficult...

Impairments in metacognitive capacity-or the processes that enable individuals to access, understand, and integrate their ideas about their own and others' mental states-are a core barrier to recovery for many people with borderline personality disorder. Although therapeutic approaches that focus on metacognitive capacity are emerging, few deal with the concept of recovery at a foundational level. This article describes how a form of metacognitively oriented psychotherapy focused on recovery, metacognitive reflection and insight therapy (MERIT), assisted a patient with borderline personality disorder and initial metacognitive deficits to develop a complex understanding of himself and others and then to use that knowledge to act as an agent in the world and effectively respond to life challenges...

Individuals with schizophrenia possess enduring deficits that limit their capacity for interpersonal connection. Negative symptoms of schizophrenia provide additional barriers to interpersonal relatedness in that they include a range of deficits related to an individual's ability to express and experience emotions-basic human capacities that are needed for daily functioning and an acceptable quality of life. Additionally, metacognitive deficits are closely related to the development and maintenance of negative symptoms; previous research has indicated that treatment of negative symptoms should focus on providing interventions that target metacognition...

Although most psychologists will at some point be confronted with a client who engages in stalking, threatening, or harassing behavior (STHB), few feel prepared to manage these situations. In this article, the results of a survey of 112 psychologists who endorsed experiencing STHB are reported. Psychologists were asked about their perceptions of client motivations and personality pathology, frequency of use of 18 risk management responses, and perceived effectiveness of these responses. The effectiveness of risk management strategies differed by client level of personality organization and motivation for STHB...

Jay A Hamm, Paul H Lysaker
Recovery for many people with serious mental illness is more than symptom remission or attainment of certain concrete milestones. It can also involve recapturing a previously lost coherent and cohesive sense of self. The authors review several case studies of integrative metacognitive psychotherapy offered to adults with broadly differing clinical presentations. In all the cases, patients demonstrated significant subjective gains and objective improvements-for example, in negative symptoms, in substance use, and in overcoming a history of childhood sexual abuse...

Timothy Rice, Nicole Derish, Leon Hoffman
In response to an emerging consensus that research is important to maintain and develop the field of child and adolescent psychoanalysis, 20 child and adolescent psychoanalysts underwent a semistructured interview concerning their current practices, background, and professional values. Grounded theory methodology was applied to a section of the narratives to produce shared concepts. A significant difference was found between how child and adolescent psychoanalysts are traditionally characterized and taught and how they currently practice...

The First Experimental Study of Transference Interpretation (FEST), conducted in Norway, is a dismantling, randomized clinical trial of the long-term effects of transference interpretation (TI). This article examines two case studies of women with poor quality of object relations (QOR), one who was rated as recovered after psychotherapy and one who was rated as not recovered. Both received TI. In general, women with poor QOR needed TI to recover, but some members of this group did not recover, even with TI...
