A structured focus on deep experience of emotion can make therapy more effective and rapid, even for patients once thought unsuitable for short-term therapy.

A rapidly-growing evidence base has demonstrated the effectiveness of some of the experiential dynamic therapies (EDTs).  EDTs include the work of Habib Davanloo (Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy, ISTDP) and his former students Leigh McCullough (Affect Phobia Therapy, APT) and Diana Fosha (Accelerated Empathic Dynamic Psychotherapy, AEDP).

This workshop brings together four experts on EDT: Nat Kuhn, Kristin Osborn, John Rathauser, and Steven Shapiro, who have devoted their careers to mastering, supervising, and disseminating these therapy models. They will each present video recordings of their work, with opportunities for questions and discussion in a collegial atmosphere.


Specific learning objectives:

  • Describe Malan’s two-triangle schema of psychodynamic formulation
  • Examine what an “experiential dynamic therapy” is
  • Discuss the contributions of Malan, Davanloo, McCullough and Fosha
