Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy
This course is now full. More dates will be published here as soon as they have been arranged.
Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a simple short term (16 sessions) individual therapy protocol for mood disorder.
This course is jointly run by The Anna Freud Centre and The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust
The protocol was designed on the basis of the work of the Expert Reference Group on clinical competencies which worked on identifying key components drawn from manualized psychoanalytic/dynamic therapies.
It is an easy to acquire, semi-structured, treatment protocol that is currently being investigated in a pilot study and appears to be quite effective with individuals in primary care with symptoms of anxiety and depression.
The British Psychoanalytic Council is currently looking to accredit the course.
Who is this course suitable for?
DIT is designed to be implemented by therapists with an interest in and experience of psychoanalytic/dynamic psychotherapy.
Aims of course
The workshop provides a basic introduction sufficient to enable participants to begin practicing this manualized treatment with supervision.
Certificate of Competence: Role Play
For those who wish to progress to the next stage, it is necessary to obtain a ‘certificate of competence’. This is a requirement for taking on supervised cases to reach practitioner level. It will involve a taped role play with an actor on the Monday after the course (4th October) which is then assessed. If this is passed then delegates can proceed to taking on supervised cases. The cost for this is an additional £100.
