Discussion of Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy

The focus of the patient discussed was her relationship with her father, which reflected in her relationships with men and her husband. Actually, her husband was an American who studied in Spain and then came to New York. And she had not passed the bar exam, even though she had a law degree from Barcelona, and one year in London. She wants to divorce her husband, who loves her, and wants to go back to the hornet's nest in Spain to be with that sadistic father who treats her one way and then treats her in another way, like a lover.
