Dr. Naficy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Naficy "Dr. Naficy acknowledges his profound gratitude to all of his patients, who have been his best teachers in the past 40 years. Dr. Naficy is dedicated to the Scientific Movement to Alleviate Human Suffering. Dr.Naficy is also grateful to Dr. Davanloo, for training him to master the powerful, effective and unique technique of unlocking and the mobilization of the unconscious mind. Dr.Naficy is in full agreement with him that "the intuitive clinical and theoretical observations of all forms of psychoanalysis, Freudian, Jungian, and Neo-Freudian, all have serious inherent errors in the models of their unconscious processes and in the approach to treatment." He is convinced that without removal of stubborn and defiant resistance of guilt, and emotional closeness, major structural changes of personality are not possible and psychodynamic psychotherapy cannot be fully successful. Dr.Naficy's training in Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy included many years of a core training program and personal supervision with Dr. Davanloo as well as attending every single annual International ISTDP meetings and seminars for the past 30 years. Dr.Naficy believes that it is his responsibility to remove the malignant resistance of guilt as well as resistance against emotional closeness and enable his patients to become the prime mover of therapeutic tasks in their journey toward emotional freedom. Dr. Naficy is a diplomat of American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and master clinician and teacher. Dr. Naficy has more than 35 years of experience in practicing psychiatry and 30 years of his professional life has been devoted to mastering the technique of Intensive Dynamic Psychotherapy. Dr. Naficy did his psychiatry Residency at Loyola University Medical School and also did one year of Chief Residency at Chicago Medical School. He is the Assistant Professor of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, where he was awarded Best Teacher of the Year 2000. He was on the Editorial committee of International Journal of Short Dynamic Psychotherapy. Dr. Naficy has been lecturing and teaching intensive Dynamic Psychotherapy both nationally and internationally and he was on faculty of New Jersey Institute for ISTDP. He presented at the United Nation Conference Room on the subject of Violence against women.
