Event description
Dr. Allan Abbass will provide a 3-day online course w/ video presentations of the cases that inspired his book, Reaching Through Resistance.

About this Event

Using video cases that influenced Reaching Through Resistance, Dr. Allan Abbass in collaboration with ISTDP San Diego Community will provide a 3-day immersion course to study of the full spectrum of patients who can benefit from Davanloo's Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy.

This course will detail the metapsychology of the ISTDP approach, how to initiate the process, how to assess systems of resistance and levels of anxiety, how to build capacity, how to mobilize the unconscious therapeutic alliance, and how to process complex feelings with patients.

The main objective is to provide knowledge of this treatment system that you can use to inform your current psychotherapy practice. It will cover the following areas:

-Overview of Metapsychology of the Unconscious

-Overview of the spectrum of suitable patients with videotape illustrations

-Psychodiagnostic assessment to determine manifestations of anxiety and resistances

-Nature of interventions including pressure, challenge, and head-on-collision with resistance

-Manifestations of the Unconscious Therapeutic Alliance

-Timing and types of interventions

-Various forms of Unlocking of the Unconscious

This immersion will be held online using a secure platform. Because of this, attendance is restricted to: 1) those who are in an ISTDP or EDT Core training or supervision program, 2) those who have previously completed an ISTDP/EDT Core training program, 3) ISTDP/EDT Trainers, 4) Colleagues of these 3 groups who will attend the immersion while physically being present in the same room, and 5) those who are part of the ISTDP San Diego Community. This is all to ensure confidentiality of case materials that will be discussed.
