1-Year Programme

This course is designed for practitioners wanting to integrate highly effective ISTDP techniques into their existing therapy practice. It is suitable for those new to ISTDP, as well as for those who have already completed a core training but wish to develop further skills in the Attachment-Based ISTDP approach.

The syllabus will cover:

  • Metapsychology of ISTDP
  • Key therapeutic interventions
  • The diagnostic spectrum and assessment process
  • Working effectively with unconscious anxiety & maladaptive defence processes
  • The punitive superego
  • The Central Dynamic Sequence

Lectures and clinical video presentations are used to teach key concepts and techniques. Supervision of participants’ own clinical work is a key element of the programme and trainees are required to present video tapes of their work in progress.

This programme is suitable for clinicians working in NHS as well as private settings. To be eligible for the foundation skills programme, participants must be qualified mental health professionals registered with a professional body (eg: psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists or counsellors)

After completion of this foundation course, participants have the option to enrol in a further two years training to be eligible for the IEDTA accredited core training certificate.
