This paper was a case-study example of ISTDP - Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.

This paper was a case-study example of ISTDP - Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy. The object was to illustrate how the Central Dynamic Sequence is outlined and made up of specific interventions by giving clinical vignettes from a videotaped ISTDP-therapy given once a week for ten weeks with a depressed woman. Before and after the treatment the patient completed two self-report questionnaires; BDI-II and CORE. The therapist also assessed global functioning on the GAF-scale. The result of the therapy was that the patient showed remarked improvement reported by the patient in the two questionnaires and at the assessment made by the therapist. The conclusion was that the therapy had an effect. It was discussed whether it could be argued that this effect was the result of ISTDP and the therapist following the Central Dynamic Sequence with its focused interventions that has been claimed to be specific factors. More research has to be made into defining the specific and general factors in ISTDP. (Less)
