JonFre_Coma.pdf Jon Frederickson, MSW : The Man Who Awoke from a Coma: Treatment of a Dissociative Patient To treat patients with low ego adaptive capacity Davanloo designed a treatment format known as the Graded technique (Davanloo 2000; Whittemore 1996). In this technique the therapist focuses on building the patient’s ego adaptive capacity (Ten Have de Labije 1999a, 1999b, 2001) and restructuring his pathway of unconscious anxiety discharge first before attempting any breakthrough into the unconscious. 2012 1
AA_Keyclinproc.pdf Abbass, Allan A. Town, Joel M. : Key clinical processes in Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy is a modified brief treatment with growing empirical support for its effectiveness with clients with psychoneurotic disorders and character pathology. This model describes key empirically-derived processes which can bring ready access to unprocessed unconscious emotions which otherwise perpetuate widespread symptom and behavioral disorders. Herein we describe the metapsychological underpinnings, clinical application and evidence for central interventions used in ISTDP through the use of a case example.

JonFre_LstSomcom.pdf Jon Frederickson, MSW : ISTDP with a Patient Suffering from Longstanding Severe Somatic Complaints The following transcript is the initial session with a 52 year old man who sought treatment for a variety of somatic complaints which had recently increased in intensity. This session has been chosen because it illustrates a nearly complete remission of the patient’s symptoms following two breakthroughs of the sadistic impulse, guilt, and grief into consciousness and de-repression of oedipal conflicts. 2011 1
JonFred_Ego_a_superego.pdf Jon Frederickson, MSW : Separating Ego and Superego in a Recovering Drug Addict Hopefully this case illustrates an important principle. Although ISTDP is focused in the end on the breakthrough to unconscious emotions, our fragile patients require much preparatory work. Their ego adaptive capacities must be developed first so that they can bear the impact of their own emotions. But to mobilize the ego, we must first separate the ego and superego. 2012 1
RobJoh_peerj.pdf Robert Johansson 1,2, Joel M. Town 1 and Allan Abbass : Davanloo’s Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy in a tertiary psychotherapy service: overall effectiveness and association between unlocking the unconscious and outcome

Background. Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), as developed by Habib Davanloo, is an intensive emotion-focused psychodynamic therapy with an explicit focus on handling resistance in treatment. A core assumption in ISTDP is that psychotherapeutic effects are dependent on in-session emotional processing in the form of rise in complex transference feelings that occurs when treatment resistance is challenged.

AA_Impl_inED.pdf Allan Abbass, R. Tarzwell, S.G. Hann, I. Lenzer, S. Campbell, D. Maxwell : Implementing an Emotion-Focused Consultation Service to Examine Medically Unexplained Symptoms in the Emergency Department Providing an emotion-focused assessment service to explore emotional contributors to medically unexplained symptoms (MUS) is a culturally new concept within the traditional model of emergency medicine. We developed a multi-step approach to educate physicians and patients on how such a service might benefit them. Results: Patients re- ported high satisfaction with the service and more physicians referred greater numbers of patients. The institution supported the service, providing permanent funding, giving it an award and nominating it for a national quality award. 2012 1
AA_Idealization.pdf Allan Abbass, MD : IDEALIZATION AND DEVALUATION AS BARRIERS TO PSYCHOTHERAPY LEARNING In the following review the author describes, from his experience, how behaviors including idealization, devaluation and splitting may obstruct the learning of specific psychotherapy methods such as Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). A working definition of idealization/devaluation and the problems that occur when it becomes entrenched in trainees or in training programs is described. It is hoped that this paper will stimulate reflection and discussion among psychotherapy students and teachers. 2004 1
