Zusammenfassung

Die Frage nach der Wirksamkeit psychodynamischer Behandlungsverfahren hat in berufspolitischen und wissenschaftlichen Debatten der letzten Jahre einen hohen Stellenwert eingenommen. In diese Zeit fällt eine Vielzahl weiterer Studienergebnisse mit neuen Effektivitätsnachweisen. Ziel des vorliegenden Beitrags ist es, einen überblick über aktuelle Ergebnisse der psychodynamischen Psychotherapieforschung zu geben, mit einem Schwerpunkt auf Metaanalysen und randomisierten Vergleichsstudien. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass es für eine große Anzahl von Störungsbildern mittlerweile Effektivitätsnachweise auf einer robusten Datengrundlage gibt. Die methodische Qualität der aktuellen Studien ist gut; auch der Vergleich mit anderen Therapieverfahren braucht nicht gescheut zu werden. Gleichzeitig sind weitere Studien notwendig, sowohl in Bezug auf Störungsbilder als auch Praxisstudien zur Abbildung der Wirksamkeit in der Breite der Anwendung im Alltag.

Current development of psychodynamic psychotherapy research

Abstract

The effectiveness of psychodynamic psychotherapy has been a “hot topic” in scientific and healthcare related debates in recent years. During this time a significant amount of new evidence supporting the effectiveness of psychodynamic psychotherapy has been published. The paper provides an overview on current psychodynamic psychotherapy research, with a focus on meta-analytic findings and randomized effectiveness trials. The results in the literature show robust evidence for the effectiveness of psychodynamic therapies for a wide range of psychiatric disorders. The methodological quality of current studies is good and comparative trials with other forms of psychotherapy yield mostly equivalent results. However, further studies are needed with regard to different mental disorders as well as effectiveness studies in everyday practice.
