Post-core training: working with resistance 2023-2024

Jonathan Entis

Dealing with highly entrenched, syntonic and/or malignant resistance can be extremely challenging and frustrating for therapists. Davanloo’s system, although highly effective, is incredibly difficult to master. No aspect of the model is more arduous to learn than the effective management of resistance, which rests on the therapist’s ability to maintain a positive alliance while relentlessly addressing the patient’s defenses. In this year-long program, Jonathan Entis and Thomas Hesslow will cover Davanloo’s main contributions regarding resistance work and help participants integrate these with their current therapist roles.

Target audience: The course is for clinically active therapists who have completed the three-year ISTDP core training. Priority will be given to Swedish therapists.
