Part 1. Principles and Practise Event:

On Friday16th – Saturday 17th April International and UK speakers will present their perspectives on the ‘main ingredients’ of ISTDP illustrated through clinical video extracts of their own practice. This event, as part of the broader conference and immersion training, will be a forum to illuminate and discuss similarities, divergences and nuances in clinical technique and applications. The aim is to stimulate a productive and informative examination of various aspects used in ISTDP and to distil and highlight critical components required for change.
