Format of Training
Core group is 10-12 participants and we meet 3 times per year for 4 day blocks. Core training includes presentations on ISTDP theory, technique and research, relevant dynamic readings, power-points, group supervision, and skill building exercises. Each group member must be willing to show a video tape of their work during each training block. Peer supervision in-between blocks is highly recommended and each group will have its own online space to discuss and dialogue together to create a sense of community.
Across 3 years; 4-day blocks x 3 each year

There is a financial commitment to the core training on a yearly basis, with no refunds being offered for the training year after the course has started.
