Introduction to ISTDP, Aug. 12., 2022.

This three-hour online workshop introduces Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) to the Hungarian clinician community using video recordings of actual therapy sessions.

Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is an accelerated model of dynamic psychotherapy, comprising a set of powerful interventions to alleviate symptoms of emotional distress and to promote mental health in a rapid and cost-effective way. The focus is on the unconscious emotional processes that underlie many psychological as well as somatic difficulties.


  • History and development of ISTDP
  • Evidence base for ISTDP
  • Working with core emotions related to attachment trauma
  • Unconscious anxiety pathways
  • Identifying maladaptive defences that interfere with therapeutic progress

Clinical case material on video will be shown to illustrate processes.


This is a workshop organized by the Hungarian ISTDP community and open to all Hungarian healthcare professionals who are interested in short-term dynamic psychotherapy. It is suitable for registered professionals working in mental health fields including:

  • psychologists with a healthcare registration (health psychologists, neuropsychologist, clinical psychologists)
  • psychotherapists,
  • psychiatrists,
  • students of the above fields.

No prior knowledge of ISTDP or dynamic therapies is necessary.
