• Elicit change talk  • What would you like to see that’s different about your  current situation? • What makes you think you need to change? • What will happen if you don’t change? • Provoke extremes: Suppose you don’t change, what is the  WORST thing that could happen? How about the best? • Look forward: How would your life be different from what it is  today? • Explore importance, readiness, and confidence (use  numerical scales): How confident are you that you can change  this behavior? What would it take to move from # to #? [Same  with importance] • Open-ended questions to understand: What do you like  about your behavior? What makes you think it might be time for  a change? What’s different about quitting this time? • Reflective listening: “It sounds like…” “I hear you saying…” • Normalizing: “Many people have struggled with this…” “A lot of  people are concerned about gaining weight when quitting.” • Decisional Balancing: What are some good things? Bad things? • Columbo approach: On one hand, I hear you telling me that…  On the other, I hear… How do you reconcile these ideas?• Support self-efficacy (validation, encouragement): Last week  you didn’t smoke at all!

Reject impulse  Rationalization (making excuses): Convincing oneself no wrong has been done, through  faulty reasoning – “convenient excuses”  Splitting – Polarizing beliefs, actions, people  into “good” or “bad”  Repression – keep impulse in unconscious  Reaction formation – do opposite of impulse  Displacement – redirect impulse  Sublimation – redirect impulse in a way  toward a productive goal (healthy)  Intellectualization – frame impulse in  intellectual terms devoid of emotion (healthy)  Humor: Impulses converted to jokes (healthy) Unique Themes in Psychodynamic Theory Content vs. Process  Focus on affect and expression  Exploration of attempts to avoid distressing thoughts and  feelings Identification of recurrent themes and patterns  Discussion of past experiences  Focus on interpersonal relations  Focus on the therapy relationship  Exploration of fantasy life Evidence base for Psychodynamic therapy  General symptom improvement  Somatic Disorders  Personality Disorders  Intrapsychic changes exceeded those seen in Dialectical  Behavior Therapy  Bateman & Fonagy (2008)  87% (treatment as usual) vs. 13% (psychodynamic)  retained BPD diagnosis at 5 yr follow-up Behavioral Observations Level of Consciousness • Vigilant • Alert • Drowsy • Lethargic • Stuporous • Asleep • Comatose • Confused • Fluctuating Speech and Language • Quantity: Talkative, spontaneous, expansive, paucity, poverty • Rate: Fast, slow, normal, pressured, halting • Volume (tone): Loud, soft, monotone, weak, strong • Fluency and rhythm: Slurred, clear, appropriate inflection,  hesitant Mood and affect • What is mood?
