Event description

Description

Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy as an extensively researched, accelerated therapeutic process develop to activate specific healing forces within the patient. The most powerful healing force within the patient is the Unconscious Therapeutic Alliance (UTA) a force discovered through detailed video research by Dr. Davanloo in the 1980s.

This force is activated by therapeutic attachment and focusing to help the person be emotionally present with you in a self caring way while trying to oppose their own defenses against doing so. The UTA can be seen on spectrum from summary communications from the unconscious, through to negation, to first breakthroughs and finally partial, major and extended-major unlocking the unconscious. In major unlocking of the unconscious the imagery of the current person changes to the imagery of the person from the past with passage of painful feelings, positive feelings and guilt about rage.

Through systematic clinical observatioons we have repeatedly seen that activation of the unconscious therapeutic alliance provides a therapeutic benefit greater than interviews or treatments where this is not activated. Hence, the central objective of ISTDP is activating the UTA and learning how to track and respond to it therapeutically.

In this 3 day video immersion course, the basic theory of ISTDP and metapsychology of the UTA will be reviewed. Case presentations from across the spectrum of low to high resistance and mild to severe fragility will illustrate the processes of activating UTA, detecting its presence and responding to it.

Main presenters Dr Allan Abbass and Dr Joel Town are pleased to have Dr. Filip Myhre, a lead trainer for the Norwegian Institute for ISTDP as a Guest Presenter.

The immersion course will include nutrition breaks and lunches a reception (or harbour cruise) and an evening dinner out together with the group.

Reduced rate for this immersion course will apply for those attending the 2019 IEDTA Conference in Boston. As the course in September 2018 sold out, it is recommended to register early.

Refund policy: Full refunds are applicable until March 1 2019. 75% refunds applied to August 1. Payments are not refundable after September 1.
