The ISTDP Clinic offers a three-year, Core Training program in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) that is accredited by the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA).
Participants will be provided with in-depth training in how to conduct ISTDP psychodiagnosis and treatment with patients across the entire range of psychological/psychiatric disorders.
Trainees are required to commit to one year at a time. Ongoing commitment is reviewed prior to the commencement of each year.
The program consists of didactic training and consultations of your own clinical practice. The didactic training relies on extensive use of video recorded therapy sessions to teach all aspects of ISTDP. In addition to the didactic and practice components, trainees receive feedback on their own work via review of your own video recorded sessions. This is provided in a group format where each trainee receives feedback of their own video recorded ISTDP sessions and views the consultations conducted by the trainer with other trainees.
