Psychodynamic Models

  • Malcolm Payne


Psychodynamic models are based on the work of Freud (e.g. Freud, 1974) and his followers (Roazen, 1979), and on developments of their work. They are called psychodynamic because the theory underlying them assumes that behaviour comes from movements and interactions in people’s minds and also because it emphasises the way in which the mind stimulates behaviour and both mind and behaviour influence and are influenced by the person’s social environment.
