Abstract

Objective: The objectives of this study were to describe advances in neurosciences and their relationship to psychodynamic models of psychopathology and to present an integrative approach to psychodynamic formulation which incorporates the neurobiological underpinnings of self-functioning and a model of relational trauma. Conclusion: Developmental psychopathology is now better able to describe the significance of early developmental periods and the interpersonal context of self-development. These findings contribute to an integrated biopsychosocial psychodynamic formulation based on core principles of early development.
