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.

Core Training is led by Dr Dion Nowoweiski with additional contributions from experienced ISTDP practitioners when available.

The dates for the annual training blocks will be provided on application. Participants must be registered health care professionals and can transfer from other programs if suitable. You must be able to video record your clinical work for supervision purposes. If you are interested in this training opportunity, please contact Dr Dion Nowoweiski and send your Curriculum Vitae.

Internet-based ISTDP Consultations

At The ISTDP Clinic we provide internet-based individual and group consultations in ISTDP. It is available to any mental health professional with internet access and a webcam who has access to a broadband internet connection and a computer with a webcam (basically any reasonable computer purchased in the last 2-3 years). You need to have permission to video recording at least one or two cases for consultation purposes. This is because training in ISTDP more effective when we can review the moment-to-moment interventions and responses rather than simply discussing cases from a theoretical perspective alone.
