This article discusses processes involved in articulating and evaluating a model of time-limited psychodynamic psychotherapy for young people (TPP-A). Through the therapeutic focus on a significant area of developmental difficulty and/or disturbance, within a time-limited period, TPP-A aims to enable the young person to recover the capacity to meet developmental challenges and/or have this capacity strengthened. The article elaborates key aspects of the model and discusses an illustrative case.
