Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is a form of psychodynamic treatment that facilitates the rapid resolution of a broad spectrum of emotional disorders in adults. It is an evidence-based psychotherapy that is strongly supported by current clinical research studies. ISTDP interventions are specifically designed to resolve anxiety, depression, somatization and personality disorders, as well as alleviate a variety of self-defeating behaviors, many of which derive from unstable or troubled early life attachments.
The recommended service intensity is 1 hour weekly for an average of 20 sessions. ISTDP can be delivered in a hospital, outpatient clinic, and/or community-based agency.
