A Day with ISTDP for Clinicians presented by Thomas Brod (Los Angeles, CA)

8 December 2018 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM


ISTDP is a systematic revision of psychoanalytic technique allowing practitioners to use emotional and attachment links to unlock a very wide range of
psychopathology. Outcome studies of high quality have demonstrated the effectiveness of ISTDP in Personality Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Mood
Disorders including Bipolar Disorder and Treatment-resistant Depression, Medically Unexplained and Somatoform Disorders, Eating Disorders, and Substance
Use Disorders. Across all psychopathology, ISTDP allows clinicians to assess anxiety with precision, working with patients at the point of maximal readiness for change.

This program defines how we put theory into practice. By viewing videotaped clinical cases, participants observe and consider key skills of attunement
to develop and maintain an effective focus  extending standard therapeutic techniques. In this presentation, we plan two video vignettes identifying
two cases that presented with panic. In each case, the symptoms of panic disappeared after the initial consultation. That’s when the difficult and interesting work begins!

The format includes orienting PowerPoint  lectures and moment-to-moment analysis of the clinical videotape illustrating decision points regarding increasing and decreasing pressure on whatever unconscious system happens to be at the forefront.

Thomas Brod, MD, Distinguished Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, is an Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the UCLA
Geffen School of Medicine. He is a senior faculty member at NCP and the co-coordinator of the Film and Mind Series. He is also on the faculty of the ISTDP Institute (Washington DC).
