Friday, November 2, Saturday November 3 and Sunday November 4, 2012|
The treatment of borderline and narcissistic patients is one of the most challenging areas in mental health. Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP) is an evidence-based psychodynamic psychotherapy developed by Otto Kernberg, M.D., and colleagues that combines the depth of a psychodynamic approach with a structure that facilitates working with personality disordered patients. A growing body of clinical experience and research shows that TFP can help patients achieve character change, resulting in more stable, productive, and satisfying lives.
Two years ago Dr. Barry L. Stern came to Pittsburgh to present a day-long overview of TFP. This year Dr. Stern will return to the PPC to provide a more in-depth TFP training experience that will take place over 3 days and involve 3 independent components.
FRIDAY, NOV. 2:
On Friday, Dr. Stern will provide a 3-hour introduction to TFP based on the 2010 training. The Friday component is open to individuals with no prior TFP training, as well as individuals who wish to attend for purpose of review.
SATURDAY, NOV. 3
The Saturday component is open to individuals who have some prior TFP training, which includes the 2010 PPC training, the Friday overview, or other TFP training.
Saturday will be divided among three issues central to the conduct of TFP treatment: contracting; technical neutrality and countertransference management; and the treatment of narcissistic pathology.
SUNDAY, NOV. 4
Sunday will feature a peer consultation group lead by Dr. Stern, and modeled on those developed and lead by Drs. Kernberg & Yeomans at the Personality Disorders Institute in New York. This component is limited to 14 participants and will include the presentation and discussion of two cases drawn in advance from the group. Advanced registration is required.
