Event description

Description

Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy is a relatively brief model of psychodynamic psychotherapy that has been shown to be effective in a variety of disorders, including anxiety disorders (Lilliengren et al.2017; Solbakken & Abbass, 2017), treatment-resistant depression (Town et al., 2017), personality disorders (Town et al, 2011; Abbass et al., 2011; Abbass et al. 2008), medically unexplained symptoms (Town et al., 2017), addictions (Frederickson & DenDooven, forthcoming), and more. ISTDP has its own metapsychology and diagnostic system that helps clinicians work precisely and collaboratively with patients
at their highest levels of capacity. Interventions include anxiety regulation, restructuring of maladaptive coping mechanisms or ‘defenses,’ and connection with deep and core affects to create transformational healing. This presentation will give an overview of ISTDP and discuss its application to patients with addictions and dual disorders.

Instructional methodology will include didactics, video presentation, and discussion.

Learning Objectives:
i. Participants will be able to identify which disorders are appropriate for ISTDP therapy and which type of
ISTDP therapy (standard, restructuring, or graded) is appropriate for treating patients with addictions

ii. Participants will be able to describe the metapsychology and technique of ISTDP therapy in working with
patients with addictions

iii. Participants will be able to identify the three different channels of anxiety according to ISTDP
metapsychology and assess their own patients’ functioning within this framework and plan interventions
accordingly
