Psychodynamic Psychotherapy for PTSD

José A. Saporta Eric M. Plakun and Edward R. Shapiro

Article Abstract

Letter to the Editor

Sir: I was puzzled by the dismissal of psychodynamic psychotherapy in the recent "Expert Consensus Guideline Series: Treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder." It appeared in a sentence along with eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and hypnotherapy under the heading "Other Forms of Psychotherapy" and was dismissed as less effective than the other treatments described. I suspect that this statement reflects a selection bias of those surveyed and is unsupported by comparative, scientific data.
