Psychodynamic Psychotherapy | Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
There is some controlled (Wiborg and Dahl 1996)
and uncontrolled (Milrod et al. 2001) evidence supporting
psychodynamic therapies specifically formulated for panic, but the
RCTs that have established the efficacy of pharmacotherapy
and CBT are not available for psychodynamic psychotherapy. However,
psychodynamic psychotherapy remains a popular mode of nonmedication
treatment for psychiatric problems, and many patients with panic
disorder may receive this type of intervention in the community.
Therefore, it is important to review the existing literature on
the efficacy of this method.
