Abstract [en]

Treatment goals in psychoanalysis often include changes in underlying dynamic mental structures, such as self- and object representations, or personality configurations. The aim of this ongoing research program is to study changes in self- and object representations, and in the anaclitic- introjective personality configuration following psychoanalysis and long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Furthermore, we investigate personality related responses to the psychoanalytic process, as well as patients’ experiences of changes in dynamic mental structure. This research program combines quantitative and qualitative methods, and integrates theory-neutral and empirically- driven, inductive approach with a theory-driven, deductive approach.
