Transference Focused Psychotherapy: Foundational Training

Part 2: April 27-29, 2017
Location TBD

About the Conference

This 3-day course offers training in an empirically validated treatment approach, transference focused psychotherapy (TFP). TFP is a state of the art, evidence‐based treatment for patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD). While TFP is a product of psychoanalytic tradition, the treatment has important modifications making it of use to general clinicians today working with patients with significant personality disorder (PD) pathology.

TFP offers clinicians an overarching approach to patients with PD symptoms including, but not limited to, patients with borderline personality disorder pathology. TFP’s approach can inform treatment with patients with narcissistic personality disorder as well as other personality disorder presentations. The goals of this workshop include introduction to TFP as an individual psychotherapy for patients with personality disorder symptoms, and introduction to TFP principles of use to clinicians in a variety of treatment settings who may not be offering an extended individual psychotherapy, but nevertheless want assistance in the challenges of treating patients with moderate to severe personality disorder symptoms.
