Über dieses Buch

The objective of this book is to update dynamic psychotherapists on the latest findings in Davanloo’s Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (IS-TDP). Previous authors have sometimes presented a simplistic, reductionist version of the technique to the public, and the current book is important because it offers the broadest and most up-to-date treatment of the subject, written by a psychiatrist who has attended Davanloo’s closed circuit training program for the past eight years. Clear and well-organized prose introduces important technical concepts that had not been previously discussed.

The book is divided into three main sections. These include sections on basic theoretical principles of Davanloo’s work, application of his new principles and research/future directions. The book begins with an opening chapter on Davanloo’s metapsychology of the unconscious. Following this chapter, major mobilization of the unconscious will be explored in detail. This important concept will be reviewed in the context of Davanloo’s closed circuit training program which has unique learning and experiential features.

A number of important newer topics are also explored. These concepts will be made less abstract and more tangible as they are illustrated through a case study of an individual who was interviewed in the closed circuit training program. These interviews, in their totality, are not available in any other format. The book ends with a section on future directions for research, neuroimaging, and competency-based education.

Zusammenfassung

This chapter is an integration of several presentations I have given over the past several years on Davanloo’s conceptualization of Transference Neurosis, from a metapsychological, clinical and technical point of view. The history of the development of the concept of Transference Neurosis is reviewed. Initially described by Freud as a “new edition of the old disease,” it was the hallmark of psychoanalytic therapy. It had been a tenet of psychoanalysis that by working through the Transference Neurosis, via interpretation, neurosis could be cured. 
Transference Neurosis is defined. Davanloo’s most recent work is summarized. It is his view that Transference Neurosis is a morbid process that adds a new, destructive defensive system on top of the Original Neurosis. Davanloo states that when DISTDP is practiced in an optimum fashion there is no development of Transference Neurosis. However, not every treatment is optimum. Unconscious factors, including Transference Neurosis/Neuroses in the unconscious of the therapist, can complicate therapy. 
Davanloo’s broader sense of Transference Neurosis is explicated. Clinical indications of the presence of a Transference Neurosis are reviewed and specific clinical types are described. The negative effect of Transference Neurosis on access to the Original Neurosis in the Unconscious is reviewed. Lastly, Davanloo’s method of removal of the Transference Neurosis is described, which relies heavily on his method of Multidimensional Unconscious Structural Change. Davanloo has pointed out the insidious nature of Transference Neurosis in the clinical situation and has shown that it is reversible. 
The theoretical concepts presented in this chapter including the terminology such as Mobilization of the Unconscious, Transference Component of the Resistance, Complex Transference Feeling, Unconscious Therapeutic Alliance, Central Dynamic Sequence, Perpetrator of the Unconscious, Fusion of Primitive Murderous Rage with Guilt and Sexuality, Intergenerational Destructive Competitive Transference Neurosis, Uplifting the Transference Neurosis, Unlocking the Unconscious, and others, are not mine. They were developed by Dr. Davanloo over more than fifty years of his systematic clinical research. My aim has been to integrate these concepts for my colleagues and to solidify my own understanding of them in the process. I wish to acknowledge the contribution that Dr. Davanloo has made to me personally and professionally, and to our field.

Zusammenfassung

This chapter addresses the development of the work of Habib Davanloo, M.D. from the early 1960’s to the present. His focus has been both on shortening the length of psychoanalytic therapies and expanding the base of patients treatable with his techniques. He, like others at the time, initially worked with highly motivated patients with a single therapeutic focus. Over the decades his clinical and clinical research base expanded to include patients with the highest complexity in their unconscious structure and the highest unconscious resistance. This includes the full spectrum of neurotic and characterologic disturbances, fragile character structure and complex cases of persistent, unresolved Transference Neurosis. His current clinical work, clinical research and education of therapists have major implications for the future of dynamic psychotherapy. His metapsychology is presented with attention to the issues of unconscious feelings, manifestations of unconscious anxiety and his unique perspective on the unconscious defensive structure. His methods of Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy (DISTDP) with “unlocking the unconscious,” Mobilization of the Unconscious, and Total Removal of Resistance are described. The evidence base for short-term dynamic and DISTDP is briefly reviewed. Lastly, the focus of Davanloo’s current work is introduced, namely his concentration on Transference Neurosis. This topic is discussed further in the next chapter.

Zusammenfassung

In this article we provide a detailed outline of a method to evaluate and treat patients with severe behavioural disorders such as eating disorders and addictions. After reviewing 3 major categories of clients with these disorders, we outline a treatment approach based on Davanloo's ISTDP for patients with fragile character structure. This new metapsychology elucidated through extensive case-based research can help the therapist explain and handle the common problems observed when these clients give up various behavioural mechanisms. If the upsurge in emotions is not understood and handled, adverse effects and high rates of drop out can ensue: on the other hand using the ISTDP framework, these events can be turned into therapeutic events accelerating growth and healing processes. A detailed approach to capacity building in patients with fragile character structure is provided as these cases are very common and challenging to treat. This review is particularly applicable to those working in day programs and hospital based programs for behaviour disordered clients.

Zusammenfassung

Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (ISTDP) was developed out of the need for relatively short psychodynamic psychotherapeutic treatment approaches to complex and resistant patient populations so common in public health systems. Based on extensive study of video recordings, Habib Davanloo discovered, and other researchers have validated, some important clinical ingredients that align the therapist with healthy aspects of the patient striving for resolution of chronic neurotic disorders and fragile character structure. In the case of character neurotic highly resistant patients, these approaches including "pressure," "clarification," "challenge to defenses," and "head on collision" can be used in a tailored and properly timed way to help the chronically suffering patient to overcome his or her own resistance and access core drivers of these pathologies. In this article the meta-psychological basis of ISTDP is reviewed and illustrated with an extended case vignette.

Zusammenfassung

Somatization, anxiety, depression and personality disorders are common features of many patients with chronic headaches. Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (ISTDP) is a brief therapy method developed specifically to treat patients with this cluster of somatic problems, symptoms and maladaptive behaviours through focusing on how the patient handles emotional experiences. It also contains a direct method of assessing the somatic discharge pathways of both emotions and anxiety, thus allowing direct observation of somatization in the case of many chronic headache sufferers. In this review, we summarize the extant literature on emotional factors in headache, review the evidence for short-term dynamic therapies in somatic problems and describe the assessment and treatment method of ISTDP we use routinely with chronic headache sufferers.
