Example text

While this sets the tone for treatment, the definiteness of the termination date provides the shape. The patient is asked to agree with the treatment plan. 36 A PSYCHODYNAMIC APPROACH TO BRIEF THERAPY The first treatment phase is used to allow the patient to return to an earlier phase of development where the sense of timelessness was prevalent. The patient re-experiences the 'golden glow' of childhood omnipotence, setting the stage for the first conflict with the therapist, who brings the patient back to the central issue and hence confronts him/her with reality.

Flegenheimer, 1982: 106) Sometimes the conflict is interpreted in the transference first, in the belief that the transference-parent links are the most important factors in successful therapy. Dreams and fantasies are not analysed as fully as they would be in long-term treatment. The therapist needs to be neither unduly confronting, nor need slhe shrink from deep interpretations, as long as these are kept to a minimum. The main qualitative differences between brief and long-term psychotherapy are in the limitation of the patient's regression, in the careful avoidance of dependence, and in the virtual elimination of the working-through phase of treatment.

Malan's most gifted pupil, the Hungarian Angela Molnos, followed up his brief work a generation later with a spirited defence of the timelimited method, which rests on the blunt statement that 'psychotherapy should be as short as possible and as long as the patient really needs it' (1995: 23). Molnos consolidated some of Malan's teaching and took it further by stating her belief 'that to the extent that analytic psychotherapies offer a space within which the timelessness of childhood - which coincides with the timelessness of the unconscious - can be reexperienced, they also awaken powerful resistances against its disruptions' (1995: 18).
