ISTDP Institute - Online Videos & DVDs

The Institute for ISTDP Training and Research is a community of people who feel a calling to alleviate human suffering to build healthier communities.  We try to do this by helping people achieve their full potential through psychotherapy, psychotherapy training, and supervision.  We value personal integrity, commitment to excellence, and compassion for self and others.  Although the model of therapy we practice is intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy, we are not here to “fossilize” it, but rather to co-create the integrative therapy of the future.   We believe that the final answers of psychotherapy have not been found.  That’s why this community is “a place that keeps the questions open.”

If you are interested in being part of such a community, please join our webinars, trainings, conferences, blogs, and live community exchanges.  We are here to help you help others.

Affect Phobia Therapy - Online Videos

Affect Phobia Therapy is based on the premise that internal conflicts about feelings underlie most psychologically-based disorders. Affect Phobia Therapy is an integrative model of short term dynamic psychotherapy (STDP) that was developed by Harvard Medical School psychologist and researcher, Leigh McCullough (McCullough-Valiant, 1997).

Under Kristin Osborn’s leadership, the popularity of Affect Phobia Therapy has increased due to the collective contributions of our international community. Today, Affect Phobia Therapy offers ongoing training programs in North America and Europe and numerous publications continue to be released including research derived from Leigh McCullough’s extensive data base of 35 years of video-taped psychotherapy recordings. 

On this site, you can find a Certified APT-Therapist, a Certified APT-Trainer or Certified APT-Supervisor, as well as some helpful publications and forms that are used in Affect Phobia Therapy. If you are interested in becoming a Certified-APT Therapist, want to follow an APT-Core Training or workshop, or seek supervision, please contact us.

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy - Online Videos & DVDs

Developed by Dr. Diana Fosha, the author of the The Transforming Power of AffectAEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) is an ever-emergent model, ever-growing through the ongoing contributions of the AEDP faculty and the members of the AEDP community.

Crisis and suffering provide opportunities to awaken extraordinary capacities that otherwise might lie dormant, unknown and untapped. AEDP is about experientially making the most of these opportunities for both healing and transformation. Key to its therapeutic action is the undoing of aloneness and thus, the establishment of the therapeutic relationship experienced as both safe haven, and secure base. Once that’s established, we work with emotional experience, working experientially toward healing trauma and suffering, and toward expanding emergent positive transformational experiences.
