Learn about Affect Phobia Therapy – an integrative approach that combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and experiential techniques into a powerful whole


Affect Phobia Therapy (APT) is based on the premise that internal conflicts about feelings underlie most psychologically-based disorders. APT is an integrative model of short term dynamic psychotherapy that was developed by Harvard Medical School psychologist and researcher, Leigh McCullough.

In this workshop, participants will learn how to conceptualize an emotional conflict and how to use experiential, cognitive- behavioral and psychodynamic techniques to treat them. They will also deepen their understanding of how a phobic response to an emotion is developed and maintained, like when people are unable to feel angry and assert themselves. Emphasis will be placed on assessment and treatment of current problems that originate from the past.

This interactive workshop will include video segments from psychotherapy sessions to demonstrate techniques and interventions, a therapy demonstration and the opportunity to discuss cases.

Kristin Osborn who was trained by Leigh McCullough and founded the Certified APT™-Training Program is leading the workshop. She presents internationally, is a member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School and is the Director of the Harvard Medical School Psychotherapy Research Program. She co-authored Paraverbal Communication in Psychotherapy: Beyond the Words and is on on the executive board of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration and President Emeritus of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association. She has extensively published articles and chapters on training clinicians and you can learn more about her and her work at
