Thanks, Mathilda25 - that's exactly what I was looking for.
And to WowFactor - Wow! Interesting response! You live up to your moniker. An earlier thread was started here wherein someone asked which programs "emphasized psychopharm more than psychodynamics" and that was treated as a legitimate question, apparently. But you suggest that if I'm interested in programs that lean the other way, I would somehow be happier as a psychologist??? That if I want a program that isn't dominated by the psychopharmacological view that somehow I can't become competent in prescribing meds and become trained in using them appropriately when they are warranted?? Wow! Stunning position.
And as far as the use of the term "psychodynamic" rather than bio-psycho-social; I'm not a psychiatry resident, so I may not be aware of the vernacular use of these terms. But if I look up the meaning of BSP online, it reads as follows: "of, relating to, or concerned with the biological, psychological, and social aspects in contrast to the strictly biomedical aspects of disease".
Given that definition from Merriam Webster, which seems to gybe with what I learned in medical school, it seems a more apt term for what I am describing.
I asked a prof. of psychiatry yesterday what is implied by the term "psychodynamic", and he related that it implies theories derived from Freud and in that lineage. This is not necessarily what I am interested in pursuing in psychiatry residency. CBT/DBT and other forms of short-term therapy have been shown to be as effective as meds, and I don't believe these are "psychodynamic" in nature. Perhaps I am wrong. Maybe this is not the terminology in use today. But if that is the case, the terminology is confusing, IMO.
In addition, things like mindfulness and other cutting-edge therapies, which have good evidence-based backing, and which I am interested in learning, I think also don't fit under the rubric of "psychodynamic", but would be better described as "bio-psycho-social". Perhaps you can help me with my understanding.
