Psychoanalytic psychotherapy – the key to changing minds and saving lives

New evidence shows efficacy of psychoanalytic psychotherapy for depression and the best efficacy compared to other psychological treatments. The latest results from a landmark UK study reviewing the use of psychoanalytic psychotherapy to treat chronic depression are well worth a read. They highlight the dismal failure of virtually every 'treatment' provided by the NHS to provide long term relief for people suffering with chronic depression. However the study found that psychoanalytic psychotherapy had significantly better success rates - nearly half of the participants in the study who used this treatment were still realising major improvements two years after therapy ended.
