These remain mostly dormant, repressed or solved, with one of them becoming activated (or having remained active) and continuously appearing to underlie behaviour in the form of focal conflicts ... which can be identified as variations of the same theme. (quoted from Balint, 1972: 11) HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF BRIEF PSYCHOTHERAPY MODELS 31 In other words, when a patient comes for treatment, s/he usually presents with symptoms which are semi- or preconscious manifestations of this unresolved focal conflict and point the way to what needs to be analysed (in the transference) to free the patient from the nuclear conflict that has been an ongoing developmental obstruction in her/his psyche.

Only through conducting follow-ups can it be established whether there has been an ongoing therapeutic effect of work done briefly, in the sense of an ongoing working through after completion of a contract and termination of the relationship because the desired process of self-analysis has been set in train and is taking its course. The psychodynamic understanding of psychic change The basic goal of psychodynamic therapy could be described as a concerted effort to make the unconscious conscious and to create meaning where there is anxiety, confusion or futility.

By its very nature a brief therapy cannot fully reveal all the unconsciously significant factors at work in it. One cannot even make that claim for full-scale analysis, however informative they are in comparison to brief therapy.... The therapist tries to deny how difficult it is to bring about change based on true and insightful modification of defenses and how magically conceived and unstable many of the apparent benefits of brief therapy are likely to be. The unyielding patient is a threat to an overeager therapist's defenses.
