An ISTDP-UK Evening Seminar with Susan Hajkowski
13 March 2015 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM$32 – $37
Clinical technique in accelerated treatment with complex patients
This presentation focuses on observations of treatment undertaken as part of a service development and research project delivering Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy into a secondary mental health NHS service. Excerpts of video material form the basis of a discussion of clinical observations. These relate particularly to evaluating and building ego capacity, working with splitting processes encountered in the rise of complex feelings, and moments of unlocking unconscious material. A particular emphasis is on decision points and dilemmas encountered in working in accelerated treatments for a patient population considered severe, complex and treatment resistant.
Susan Hajkowski is Lead Practitioner in Psychotherapy, Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Susan’s specialist clinical practice includes the application of STPP to severe and complex patient populations involving outcome, process and effectiveness research. Susan has delivered research and clinical presentations both nationally and internationally including in Australia, North America and Europe. Susan is an Accredited Lecturer at the University of Derby and Associate Tutor at the University of Leicester.
Susan completed training in ISTDP as part of the first core training group in the UK and she is a founder member of ISTDP-UK. Susan is current President of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR) UK Chapter.
