Transference Focused Psychotherapy: An Object Relations Theory Approach to Personality Problems
English – Online
This workshop will introduce participants to the theory and techniques of TFP, an evidence-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy for borderline personality disorders (BPD). TFP helps therapists provide effective treatment of this disorder with less chaos and stress than is usually associated with the treatment of borderline patients. We will begin with a summary of the object relations theory on which Transference Focused Psychotherapy is based, which provides a way to understand the psychological organization of the patient with borderline structure despite differing traits (and is one basis for the DSM-V Alternate Model for Personality Pathology).
The first part of the workshop will use power point slides and examples to present theory and techniques and note the research supporting the use of TFP. We will then move to discussion of videos and audience examples. This will model how participants may apply TFP elements to the challenging interpersonal situations therapists must address in trying to help individuals with personality pathology.
General admission fee: $120; $135 after March 3
