I'm a PGY-3. My residency does not require us to get extensive psychodynamic training. I don't necessarily want to have my own psychodynamic patients as an attending, but I really do see the utility in (at least some) psychodynamic training - I think it's a good framework/way of looking at patients even if you are not seeing them in a psychodynamic therapy context. I often find myself enjoying psychodynamic supervision, but I would love to not have to do it anymore. And I don't particularly enjoy the therapy sessions - sometimes I even dread them. All of this is to say - should I continue to see psychodynamic patients during my fourth year? I don't WANT to, but I recognize this may be the type of thing that is "good for me." In addition, I also recognize that people after residency pay good money for supervision and I'm getting it for free. So in short - I'd be okay with the idea of forcing myself to do one more year of psychodynamic therapy and supervision. But I would LOVE to not do it. I find a lot of value in reading psychodynamic texts and would likely continue to do that but experience is a separate thing and possibly something I should just make myself continue. Any thoughts?
