A group of 74 psychiatric patients who had undergone psychodynamic therapy (PDT; 24 women, 10 men), cognitive psychotherapy (CPT; 9 women, 2 men) or cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT; 17 women, 12 men) were given the Defense Mechanism Technique modified (DMTm), a percept-genetic technique, both prior to therapy and four months after completing it, at which time they evaluated by questionnaire the therapeutic outcome in terms of their degree of satisfaction, change in personality, symptoms, and handling of problems and the therapy’s usefulness. As hypothesized, either an increase in denial or the emergence of inclusive affect isolation following therapy in DMTm occurred less frequently in PDT patients who rated their therapy as successful than in the remaining PDT patients and in both of the other two patient groups (CPT and CBT), irrespective in the latter case of how the therapeutic outcome was rated. The findings were interpreted in terms of the Andersson developmental and psychodynamic model of the mind.
