In the following paper we report on systematic outcomes of Davanloo’s Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy as provided by psychology trainees. Eight patients with anxiety disorders were provided ISTDP. Broad ranging results found that both clinician and patient symptom ratings were improved significantly. Beyond this self-reported interpersonal problems were markedly reduced and there was evidence of marked structural personality change as evidenced by ratings on the SWAP-200 instrument. We conclude that ISTDP therapy provided by trainees is efficacious bringing broad and in depth change to pathology that can perpetuate anxiety disorders and other psychiatric conditions.

Abstract

In the following paper we report on systematic outcomes of Davanloo’s Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy as provided by psychology trainees. Eight patients with anxiety disorders were provided ISTDP. Broad ranging results found that both clinician and patient symptom ratings were improved significantly. Beyond this self-reported interpersonal problems were markedly reduced and there was evidence of marked structural personality change as evidenced by ratings on the SWAP-200 instrument. We conclude that ISTDP therapy provided by trainees is efficacious bringing broad and in depth change to pathology that can perpetuate anxiety disorders and other psychiatric conditions.
