ISTDP training is divided into three tiers: pre-core, core and post-core. The pre-core is the introductory training consisting of three days. The core training is the foundational training spanning three years. The post-core training is advanced training for clinicians who’ve been through pre-core and core training.

For training in Swedish, you can also check the website of the Swedish ISTDP institute or of the Swedish society for ISTDP for more information and updates.

For training in English, we will list future training opportunities here as soon as dates are set.
