New Developments in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy: Treatment of Self and Interpersonal Functions

Amsterdam, October 1 – 2, 2019

Master Class taught by Eve Caligor MD

This master class will provide an overview of Transference-Focused Psychotherapy – Extended (TFP-E), a flexible, trans-diagnostic psychodynamic treatment model for pathology of self and interpersonal functioning based on TFP principles.  The treatment builds on a convergence between the psychodynamic, object relations theory model of personality pathology and recent developments in the empirical study of personality disorders reflected in the Alternative Model for Personality Disorders in the DSM5. Both models emphasize the centrality of self and interpersonal functioning in personality health and pathology across a range of severity, and improvement in these domains of functioning emerges as a central goal in treatment.  The course will introduce participants to the general clinical principles and specific techniques that define TFP-E.  We will highlight how this general treatment model is systematically modified according to severity of personality pathology, as techniques are differentially applied to meet the needs of the individual patient.
