O. L. I. Integrative Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

O.L. I. is an abbreviation of

Obtaining Legitimate Identity by Overcoming Latent Illusions

O. L. I. method is founded by Nebojša ​ ​ Jovanović, a psychotherapist from Serbia.

​O.​ L. I. Integrative Psychodynamic Method is a new approach to psychotherapy with fundamentally psychodynamic orientation. It is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of various therapies. O. L. I. practitioners take the view that there is no single approach that can treat each client in all situations. Each person needs to be considered as a whole (at the affective, behavioral, cognitive, and conative levels of functioning) and psychotherapeutic techniques should be tailored to their individual needs.

Theoretically, O. L. I. method is based on the integration of four psychoanalytic psychologies — Freudian psychology ("classical psychoanalytic theory"), Ego psychology, object relations theory and Self psychology. Each approach provides a partial explanation of behavior and each is enhanced when selectively integrated using the model of integration that O. L. I. method offers.

The working model of O. L. I. method is also integrative. By integrating the most useful aspects of the major approaches, a plan for action emerges. When practicing O. L. I. method, the use of diverse techniques of various psychotherapeutic approaches (psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy, transactional analysis, bioenergetics, NLP, "focusing", biofeedback and neurofeedback, REBT, client-centered) in combination with techniques that have emerged within the O. L. I. method is encouraged.

O. L. I. method – basic concepts

The groundwork for the integration of techniques arisen from different psychotherapeutic concepts is based on the fundamental emotions processing capabilities — basic emotional competencies.

Basic emotional competences are the very heart of O. L. I. method. They are listed below:

  1. Neutralization and mentalization capabilities (which in O. L. I. method are labeled as regulator and articulator of the psyche)
  2. Object wholeness (the glue of the psyche)
  3. Object constancy (the stabilizer of the psyche)
  4. Ambivalence tolerance (the orientation of the psyche)
  5. Frustration tolerance (the immunity of the psyche)
  6. Will (the engine of the psyche)
  7. Initiative (the actuator of the psyche)

The techniques of various psychotherapeutic approaches are used in sessions only if they can contribute to the development of some of these emotional competencies. O. L. I. method promotes the well balanced functioning of basic emotional competences in order to achieve and maintain our full potentials. Freud claimed that „Normality is the ability to love and to work“. According to O. L. I. method, fully developed basic emotional competences are the precondition for the development of love and work capabilities.
