The ROCHESTER INSTITUTE FOR DAVANLOO'S INTENSIVE SHORT-TERM DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY

The Rochester Institute for Davanloo's Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy is an educational institute provisionally chartered by the New York State Education Department in 1987. We offer mental health educational programs as a not-for-profit organization.

 

Brief Description of DAVANLOO'S INTENSIVE SHORT-TERM DYNAMIC PSYCHOTHERAPY and  UNLOCKING THE UNCONSCIOUS

 

Davanloo's Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (D.I.S.T.D.P.) was developed to relieve emotional difficulties through the rapid and enduring therapeutic process of "Unlocking the Unconscious." Using precise therapeutic interventions and resting on a thorough understanding of human psychological functioning, Davanloo's method has demonstrated its effectiveness over four decades of development. The goals of this treatment encompass not only relief from acute symptoms, but also freedom from crippling, deep-rooted patterns of self-sabotage. Patients experience increased emotional freedom, enriched interpersonal relationships, and heightened mental functioning. D.I.S.T.D.P. is uniquely powerful because the patient systematically works with the therapist to experience feelings in the present which originated in their formative emotional traumas, a process patients have described as, "Unlocking of the Unconscious."

The result is a deeply experienced sense of freedom from the traumas of one's past. This result is typically achieved in 40 sessions or less.

The training has its own unusual power because of the use of video recorded interviews of actual work with patients. Trainees often report positive experiences within their own psyches in response to this aspect of the training. The extensive use of interviews in teaching also provides the participants with more experiential understanding of metapsychological concepts that relate to neurobiologic phenomena within the patient. This affectively intense method of teaching transcends sterile intellectual didactics to illustrate practical application of the technical concepts behind D.I.S.T.D.P.

Strengthen your therapeutic abilities. You will watch many video recorded excerpts from psychotherapy sessions, demonstrating the wide range of psychopathology to which DISTDP can be applied. We will use these interviews to teach and to give you repeated hands on practice at identifying defenses, handling resistance, rapidly assessing strengths and vulnerabilities, and developing a clearer understanding of the human unconscious. Numerous taped vignettes will focus on the accessing of unconscious material and on the therapeutic handling of transference and counter transference. This seminar includes Dr. Davanloo's most recent formulations. Extensive time for discussion and questions is built into the schedule.

Cost: $750 for the series.

 

  • GROUP SUPERVISION

If you want to use the technique at its most intense levels, and if you have had some exposure to DISTDP, this supervision is designed for you. Each supervision group negotiates meeting times and dates, and remains together for the academic year. You bring Video recordings of at least one initial psychotherapy interview to each session. We bring our tapes to teach by example. Sessions vary in length depending on the number of participants, but you will have 2 hours of individual supervision each time. Admission to the Supervision Program requires an application form and a curriculum vita, and may require an interview and professional references. A certificate documenting the number of supervised hours will be issued at the end of the academic year.

Cost $500 per session.

 

  • SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS

Each training session is uniquely designed for your organization. We will work with you and your staff. Past topics for in-service training have included Bulimia, ACOA's, Assessing Depression, Assessing Adaptive Capacity, Fragility vs Borderline Personality, Managing Patient Anxiety, Diagnosis.

 

  • OTHER PRESENTATIONS BY FACULTY

Dr Schubmehl has been director of the full day course, "Davanloo's Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy in Clinical Practice" at the American Psychiatric Association's Annual Meeting every year since 2002.
