This is big, please spread the word! These every-two-year (or so) three-day conferences showcase leaders in the area of Experiential Dynamic Therapy (EDT, which includes ISTDP and others). All the clinical presentations include video recordings of psychotherapy sessions, so participants have an unequaled opportunity to witness a variety of styles of focused, experientially-based dynamic therapy. Many of the greats of ISTDP will be presenting, including Allan Abbass, Patricia Coughlin, Jon Frederickson, and Robert Neborsky.
Last May, I became president of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA). The IEDTA was founded by former students of Habib Davanloo, some continuing to practice ISTDP, and some taking their therapy in other directions such as Diana Fosha’s AEDP and Leigh McCullough’s APT. The term EDT encompasses all these schools.
The last IEDTA Conference was in Amsterdam in 2016; the 2014 conference was in Washington DC, and previous conferences have been in Milan, Vancouver, Los Angeles, among other places.
Our 2019 keynote speaker is the very engaging Dr. Edward Tronick, one of the pioneers of attachment research and originator of the “still-face paradigm.” The conference is co-sponsored by William James College (formerly MSPP), and up to 18 hours of CE credits will be available for most disciplines, including physicians.
It will take place at the Hyatt Regency Boston, in Boston’s theater district. Special conference rates will be available at the hotel.
