Abstract

A number of authors have argued against psychoanalytically oriented therapy for patients with PTSD (Figley, 1978; Fuentes, 1980; Walker & Nash, 1981; Haley, 1985). However, Horowitz (1973, 1974, 1976) advocates a dynamic approach to treatment, which he variously describes as “phase-oriented treatment,” “focal psychodynamic treatment,” “brief dynamic therapy,” or “crisis-oriented psychodynamic therapy.” What separates Horowitz’s (1973, 1974, 1976; Horowitz & Solomon, 1975, 1978; Krupnick, 1980) approach to treatment from traditional psychoanalytic approaches is its pragmatism and synergy with information processing theory and cognitive approaches to emotion.
