2024 Norwegian immersion in ISTDP with Dr. Allan Abbass: Navigating the Treatment Course Across the Spectra
Is this year’s immersion we will review the treatment courses across the spectra of patients suitable for ISTDP. We will begin with a low resistant patient with a very short treatment course with a therapeutic alliance established quickly, and no need to mobilize the unconscious therapeutic alliance to any significant extent: termination is straightforward. We will then move to a moderate to highly resistant patient where there is the initial phase of establishing a treatment alliance, psychodiagnosis, working with defences, mobilization of the unconscious, repeated unlocking and a relatively straightforward termination phase. Next, we will go to a repression case with regressive defences and review how to establish a treatment alliance, do psychodiagnosis, build capacities, followed by repeated unlocking and a phase of termination in a time limited course. Finally, we will repeat the similar process with a fragile patient. We will review in each of these cases the unique elements within these different patient categories.
In advance of this course, please prepare questions based on your current cases and we will leave a good amount of time for responding to your questions related to these different categories of patient.
