En este máster en Psicoterapia Psicoanalítica Contemporánea, se ofrece una rigurosa formación en el modelo de la psicoterapia psicoanalítica, pero desde una perspectiva actualizada. La evidencia empírica apoya la eficacia de la terapia psicoanalítica o psicodinámica. Diferentes estudios muestran que los tamaños de los efectos de este modelo de intervención psicoterapéutico son tan grandes como los reportados para otros modelos teóricos de psicoterapia, que suelen promoverse más activamente como “respaldados empíricamente” y “basados en evidencia” (Shedler, 2010). Este máster en Psicoterapia Psicoanalítica Contemporánea ofrece al alumno el desarrollo de unas competencias y habilidades técnicas, que le permitirán llevar a cabo procesos psicoterapéuticos que aborden con rigor y profundidad las dificultades emocionales e interpersonales de las personas atendidas. -
