Working With Treatment Resistant Depression Using ISTDP – Dr Joel Town
May 17 - May 18
A 2-Day Seminar with Joel Town
Over half of people suffering with major depression do not report an adequate response to front line treatment efforts. With each unsuccessful treatment, the prognosis becomes worse leading to demoralization in both patients and professionals. The Halifax Depression Study demonstrates the efficacy of Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) in a treatment resistant depression population. New research from this study suggests how ISTDP therapists can enhance treatment for depression by better understanding the times in therapy when helping patients experience their emotions will be most effective.
This 2-day training course will focus on the method of ISTDP for treatment resistant depression. Detailed analysis of audio-visual case material will illustrate central principles therapists can use for helping patients to overcome processes linked to treatment resistance.
