COURSES

 

Courses and video seminars are designed to cover the theoretical and technical elements, rationale and evidence base for IE-DP/ISTDP/EDT.

 

All courses and seminars comprise videos from real psychotherapy sessions, aiming to demonstrate the actual application of the therapeutic model to a variety of clinical situations, varying levels of resistance and fragility, and different treatment phases: starting the process, stabilizing change, conclusion, after termination follow-up.

 

Courses and seminars usually last 1-3 days, and are planned either as independent events, or as part of a Core Training Program.
