ISTDP-akademiet: Peter Liliengren (SE) – Resolving social anxiety with ISTDP

8. december 2021 kl. 17:00 - 19:30

Det er med stor glæde, at ISTDP-Danmark i samarbejde med Svenska Förening för ISTDP kan invitere til den anden række af præsentationer i Selskabets ”ISTDP-akademiet”.

ISTDP-akademiet er en online foredragsrække, hvor møder består af to timers præsentation efterfulgt af en halv times diskussion. Møderne finder sted med ca. en måneds mellemrum og afholdes altid på hverdage uden for normal arbejdstid, så deltagelse forhåbentlig er tilgængelig for de fleste.

Akademiets første sæson har været en stor succes med mange deltagere og gode tilbagemeldinger. Det er vores ambition på sigt at præsentere et bredt udvalg af både danske og internationale navne fra ISTDP-verdenen, og at akademiet kan blive en anledning for vores medlemmer til at orientere sig bredt i vores internationale fagfællesskab og til at holde sig orienteret om vores felts nyeste udviklingsområder. Med sine hyppige, men korte møder og sit bekvemme online-format håber vi, at ISTDP-akademiet kan udgøre en optimal ramme for netop dette.

ISTDP-akademiet er åbent for medlemmer af Dansk Selskab for ISTDP samt medlemmer af IEDTA og øvrige nordiske selskaber for ISTDP.

Tilmelding sker for fire møder ad gangen til en samlet pris på 1000 kr. Deltagere vil inden mødestart modtage en mail med link til deltagelse i mødet via zoom, som alle derfor skal have installeret på forhånd.

Detaljer om de kommende fire oplæg:


1. september 2021 kl 17.00-19.30: Sara Basso (IT) – ISTDP principles in childhood psychotherapy

The presentation will focus on the integration of ISTDP in psychotherapy for children. This integration of the ISTDP graded format, thanks to the use of the principles and techniques of ISTDP and other projective techniques, such as drawing, story-telling and playing, allows young patients to become aware of their anxiety and to express their distressing unconscious emotional contents, giving them the opportunity to process these aspects over the course of the therapeutic relationship.
The presentation will focus both on theoretical/technical elements and clinical practice through an illustrative clinical case regarding a 10-year-old little girl with a strong anxiety and related scholastic difficulties.
Sara Basso, Psychologist and Psychotherapist, completed her IEDTA certified Core Training in 2017 with Leone Baruh. She works with children, adolescents and young adults at Centro MasterMind, a private clinical center of psychotherapists in Italy. In collaboration with her colleagues she has been examining unexplored opportunities to integrate ISTDP with other psychotherapeutic models used with children.

6. oktober 2021 kl 17.00-19.30: Jonathan Entis (US) – Working with defiance in Davanloo’s ISTDP

This presentation will cover various aspects of working with defiance, and its twin, compliance, in Davanloo’s ISTDP. These two defenses are often invisible to the patient and at times to the therapist, presenting unique challenges for the alliance. All patients with a history of early developmental trauma have access to these two defenses as indirect ways of managing their feelings and distancing from others, thus knowledge of how to identify them and work with them is fundamental to a deep understanding of Davanloo’s metapsychology. In this presentation, Dr. Entis will thoroughly review the concepts of defiance and compliance and how to work with them technically, and will use case presentations to illustrate.

Jonathan Entis, PhD, is a psychologist in private practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is licensed in both Massachusetts and New York.
He is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, where for the past three years he has taught and supervised in ISTDP.
He is an IEDTA-certified teacher in ISTDP, and presented at the IEDTA international conference in Boston in 2019.
In 2021 he co-presented with John Rathauser, PhD, a 2-day seminar on working with syntonic defenses in Davanloo’s ISTDP.
He will also be assisting Dr. Rathauser in his next 3-year core training program in New Jersey.
Jonathan completed a 3-year core training in ISTDP with Patricia Coughlin and has been in weekly supervision with both Patricia Coughlin, PhD and John Rathauser, PhD.

3. november 2021 kl 17.00-19.30: Marvin Skorman (US) – You can’t change anyone, even in therapy

Marvin Skorman: I plan to show video excerpts from the initial four hour session of a male with high ego adaptive capacity, including a major unlocking of the unconscious. I will emphasize the collaborative nature of our relationship, and the mutual admiration and affection, even during the heaviest phases of pressure and challenge. In addition to observations regarding technique and meta-psychology, I will comment on what is going on with me during the video as well.

I closed my 40 year psychotherapy practice in April of 2020 to focus on teaching, training, and supervision. Since closing my practice I have become more sensitized to therapist suffering and not just patient suffering. So many ISTDP therapists relentlessly pressure themselves to pressure, drag their patients through the central dynamic sequence, chronically feel bad about themselves and their work, portrait prematurely, fish for anger (Davanloo’s term), disconnect from themselves and their patients by trying to be clones of their supervisors (including me), and judge their sessions in totality by whether or not there is an unlocking or a portrait. I call this syndrome ISTDP Attachment Disorder and plan to elaborate during our time together.

I welcome comments and questions throughout my presentation, not just during the designated question period. Looking forward to seeing you in November.

Marvin Skorman has been practicing ISTDP in one form or another for 39 years. He received his core group training from Dr. Davanloo from 1987 to 1991. He cofounded the Rochester Institute for ISTDP and was invited by Dr. Davanloo to be a board member and Treasurer of the International Institute for Teaching and Research of ISTDP in the late 80’s.

8. december 2021 kl 17.00-19.30: Peter Liliengren (SE) – Resolving social anxiety with ISTDP

Social anxiety symptoms involve fears of being negatively and/or harshly judged by others and subsequent avoidance of situations where conflict and anxiety is triggered. In psychodynamic terms, this fear is typically based on projection of own angry feelings and/or negative self-judgment (i.e. the “Super-Ego”) onto others. Such phenomena are quite common and may present across both the “psychoneurotic” and “fragile” spectrums of patients we treat with ISTDP. Thus, depending on the patient’s level of anxiety tolerance, capacity for reality testing and syntonicity, patients may need different interventions in order to resolve the problems.

In this 2.5 hour presentation, I will present a case of a young man with long-standing problems with social anxiety, meeting DSM5 criteria for Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) and avoidant personality features. The patient was assessed as “mildly fragile” and was treated with the graded format of ISTDP. Treatment consisted of a total of 14 sessions and the presentation will include video segments from the initial trial therapy as well as several later sessions, including assessment of changes at termination.

The specific learning objectives of the presentation include:
How to conduct a psychodiagnostical assessment to determine the patient’s problems and capacity for ISTDP treatment
Detecting and dealing with “projective anxiety”
Establishing a conscious and unconscious alliance
Detecting anxiety thresholds and working with the graded format to increase affect tolerance
Working through, including breakthroughs to complex mixed feelings related to past attachment traumas

Peter Lilliengren is a licensed psychologist and psychotherapist by the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare. He currently maintains a private practice in Stockholm. Besides seeing private patients, he is involved in teaching, supervision and psychotherapy research at Stockholm University, Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College and several other psychotherapy training sites in Sweden. He has been learning, practicing and teaching ISTDP for over 10 years and has been trained by Patricia Coughlin, Jon Frederickson and Allan Abbass. He currently co-runs a 3-year ISTDP core training program in Stockholm together with his colleague Tobias Nordqvist. Peter has PhD in clinical psychology and authored or co-authored over 20 peer-reviewed psychotherapy research papers. He is currently president of the Swedish Society for ISTDP.
