Patient complexity makes treatment more difficult and challenging even for the most seasoned therapist. Therefore, being able to identify and handle the barriers that could hurt you and your patient’s treatment efforts is a critical element in providing an effective course of therapy.
ISTDP was developed through many years of video-based research and has helped many therapists learn how to detect and handle patient barriers even with complex cases. This workshop will present video-based examples of treatment using ISTDP principles and techniques to assist you in becoming a more effective therapist.
In this workshop, the principles, metapsychology, and techniques of ISTDP will be presented. Demonstrations of useful techniques to help increase the effectiveness of your work will be provided with extensive use of video recorded material of actual cases.
This workshop should help you become more confident to work with complex cases and to help improve the quality of the treatment you provide.
Refreshments provided (morning tea/lunch/afternoon tea each day).
Participants must be registered/licensed mental health professionals.
Please arrive by 8:30am on Friday 26th October for registration.

This workshop will use video recordings of actual therapy sessions. Therefore attendance at this workshop is restricted to registered/licensed mental health professionals and those in the advanced stages of university postgraduate mental health training programs.
