Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy by Rick Ferm, PhD (Psychoanalytic Explorations)

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

This presentation will focus on Time-limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) (Strupp and Binder, 1985, Hannah Levenson, 1995, 2010). The TLDP model integrates relational, interpersonal, object-relations and attachment theory (emphasizing early internal working models of self-other experiences with primary care-takers) perspectives from within the larger psychodynamic framework, and provides a case formulation structure, which supports time sensitive attention to collaborative treatment goals (both intrapersonal and interpersonal). The presentation will include an introduction to the time-limited tradition within the broader history of psychodynamic/ psychoanalytic psychotherapy, TLDP based theory and formulation, and therapy process from a TLDP perspective. Empirical support for the model will be presented. The presentation will include training tapes illustrating the model in practice. There will be an opportunity to start and stop the tapes for questions and discussion as part of exploring and understanding the model. (Note: if time permits, there may be an opportunity for attendees to present clinical case material as a way to practice direct application of the model).

Learning Objectives:
• Demonstrate an understanding of the advantages and limitations of TLDP
• Ability to apply the TLDP case formulation model
• Demonstrate an understanding of the empirical evidence supporting the efficacy of the TLDP model
