Concurrent Therapies When Therapists Don't Concur Related Papers

Carolynn P. Maltas, Ph.D.

This paper reports on my experience with a common but little studied phenomenon in the field of psychoanalytic psychotherapy: the simultaneous treatment of a patient by more than one therapist and in more than one modality. Although I have found no research and very little clinical writing about concurrent therapies, when informally polling psychoanalytic colleagues, everyone I spoke with was treating patients who were simultaneously in treatment with someone else in a different therapeutic modality. The most difficult combinations appear to be individual psychotherapy or analysis along with couple or family psychotherapy, while group therapy or psychopharmacology are less problematic.
