Psychotherapy: The Science and Art of Relationships

In psychotherapy practice, child and adolescent psychiatrists work both with the therapistsí relationships to patients and their families and the important relationships in the patientsí lives. Indeed, psychotherapy is the most relationship intense aspect of child and adolescent psychiatric practice. It builds on the power of relationships to change psychological functioning. Advances in the science of relationships can inform clinical practice across the spectrum of psychotherapies. This Institute updates participants on research advances, in ethology and attachment that shape our understanding of the role of healthy relationships and relational stress or dysfunction on physiology, epigenetics, and developmental psychopathology. With this background, participants examine and compare the relational focus and distinctive features in clinical interventions of maternal/child mutual regulation, Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Supportive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mentalizing-Based Therapy (MBT).
