Dr. Peter Schuster was one of the first European psychiatrists and psychoanalysts who invited Otto F. Kernberg for lectures and training courses to Vienna. Since the early 1980s Otto F. Kernberg regularly visits Vienna and delivers training and supervision to TFP therapists. In the late 1990s Bernhard Brömmel visited the Personality Disorders Institute in New York and received TFP training by Otto F. Kernberg and his colleagues. From 2003 – 2010 the Viennese TFP therapists took part in the Munich-Vienna TFP study that demonstrated the efficacy of the treatment (Doering et al. Br J Psychiatry 2010; 196(5):389-395). The Viennese TFP therapists belong to three institutions: The Academy for Psychoanalysis, the Austrian Society of Applied Depth Psychology and General Psychotherapy (ÖGATAP), and the Department of Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy, Medical University of Vienna. During the last decade regular TFP training courses are offered and a number of regular supervision groups take place in Vienna. Moreover, Viennese TFP trainers and supervisors are delivering TFP courses in several places in Austria and Germany as well as at international conferences.
After the International Society of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (ISTFP) has been inaugurated in New York in 2011, Vienna became the headquarter of the society with Stephan Doering as vice president and executice officer and Melitta Fischer-Kern as treasurer.

The Berlin TFP Group is a working group of the „Institut für Psychotherapie e.V. Berlin“, one of Germany’s largest Institutes for Psychoanalysis. It offers advanced training for specialists in child/ adolescent psychotherapy as well as adult psychotherapy.
Inspired by Otto F. Kernberg, who for years has worked closely with this institution in manifold ways, Irmhild Kohte-Meyer founded the TFP Group in 2004. She was the head of the team until she passed away in 2011. After this, Werner Köpp had assumed her role, who handed over the function of the spokesperson to Marion Braun in 2014.
The goal of the group’s founding members was to first internalize the TFP treatment method and then to establish TFP according to Kernberg at the “Institut für Psychotherapie”. The project group’s main focus lies in theoretical training, in the supervision by Otto F. Kernberg and Mathias Lohmer as well as in peer consulting within a small collegial group.
Currently, we are dealing with the topic of how severe personality developmental disorders on the structural level of BPD are manifested in child’s play.
TFP for the treatment of adolescents is also a part of the curriculum in which child- and adolescent therapists are taking part as well.
By and by we have offered patients with severe personality disorders TFP treatment through the communications office at the “Institut für Psychotherapie e.V. Berlin”.
Since 2009, we have been offering seminars on TFP for advanced training candidates in the framework of their psychoanalytic studies.
A curriculum for further training has been available to certified psychoanalysts at our institution since 2010. This way of training is also supported by Otto F. Kernberg and Mathias Lohmer by means of theory and case studies. At the time we are organizing peer consulting groups consisting of 4 – 6 participants.
The Berlin TFP Group is currently striving to expand its network with medical centers and institutes on a Berlin-Brandenburg scale.

PDlab is a registered scientific association devoted to the treatment, study and research in the area of personality disorders. Specifically, Pdlab’s mission is to foster the knowledge and application of the object relations model of personality pathology within the Italian psychiatric context. Therefore, PDlab encourages affiliation with private and public mental health facilities to develop teaching programs to apply TFP-based treatments as well as research projects.
All PDlab members are licensed psychotherapists, including psychiatrists and clinical psychologists. While some of them are in private practice only, others also serve as staff clinicians or faculty within Italian public psychiatric services (Departments of Mental Health of Lecco and Parma) and/or University Departments (University of Parma- University of Milano Bicocca). This professional heterogeneity accounts for the group’s commitment to pursue both clinical and research aims related to the association’s goals.

Institution where TFP isoffered to patients:
TFP is provided on a private practice basis in Parma (where PDlab is officially based), Milano, and Lecco by the members of the PDlab, please see http://www.pdlab.it/.

Regular training courses, workshops, and supervisions:
PDlab runs a regular two-day basic training course and regular supervisions for licensed mental health professionals who are planning to become members or fellows of PDlab and/or TFP therapists.
Several members of the group are regularly requested to present on TFP theory, research and model of treatment at national conferences or local seminars on personality disorders. Lectures usually focus on illustrating the potential advantages of implementing TFP within the Italian public and private mental health facilities for personality disorders. In addition, PDlab members teaching in University Departments are introducing TFP principles to psychology students and psychiatry residents, within their annual course schedule.
Weekly group meetings are scheduled both in Parma and Milan, devoted to group supervision as well as to clinical and theoretical discussions. Professionals in the scientific community are welcome to attend the clinical discussions.

TFP was introduced in the Netherlands in the 1990s by Otto Kernberg and Frank Yeomans. About 50 therapists are trained, supervised and experienced in delivering TFP, while twice as many received some form of TFP training. TFP has been included into the National Guidelines for the Treatment of Personality Disorders (2008) and in formal professional training. A mailing list of TFP-trained clinicians has been gathered by Paul Wijts and Nel Draijer to organize yearly national supervision meetings with Frank Yeomans.The Dutch society ‘TFP Netherlands’ was founded in May 2012. Members of TFP Nederland will be registered clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychiatrists or those in training to be registered, and who have received TFP training according to the Society’s criteria, who are actively conducting TFP, and who participate in TFP intervision groups. Junior members (‘aspirants’) are those who have started the theoretical and technical TFP training as well as their own psychoanalytic psychotherapy.Statutes of ‘TFP Nederland’ follow those of the ISTFP. Aims are:

  • To promote the development and practice of TFP in the Netherlands.
  • To provide training and supervision opportunities for future TFP therapists.
  • To promote research on TFP.

In order to achieve these aims (board) members of TFP Nederland teach TFP in formal post-doc training courses on psychotherapy, clinical psychology, psychoanalysis and psychiatry. They organize national training courses and local supervision opportunities for new members. The society is in close cooperation with the Dutch Society for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (NVPP), which has a formal ‘license register’ for TFP. The society organizes a yearly national conference on TFP development and practice, in close contact with the Personality Disorders Institute (PDI) in New York (Frank Yeomans). In 2012 TFP Nederland organizes the 2nd International ISTFP conference.
