For todays' replay, we thought it would be a great opportunity to revisit our conversation with renowned psychoanalyst and psychologist, Nancy McWilliams. It can be difficult to verbalize the issues with “evidence-based” models of care, but with McWilliam's deeper analysis of quality depth-oriented therapies like psychoanalytically-informed and attachment-oriented therapy, she integrates the neurobiological aspect that Freud began, which has now been confirmed. Enjoy!
