Dynamic psychiatry is that which is based on the study of emotional processes, their origins, and the mental mechanisms underlying them, rather than observable behavioral phenomena, in contrast with descriptive psychiatry which is based on the study of observable symptoms and behavioral phenomena rather than underlying psychodynamic processes. Most modern psychiatrists believe that it is most helpful to combine the two complementary approaches in a biopsychosocial model.
