For Therapists

Davanloo’s Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) is an effective, time-efficient way of treating a very wide spectrum of patients, including many who have not been helped by other therapy modalities.

I am available for one-time or ongoing case consultation/supervision for therapists who are learning ISTDP, or who want to explore integrating aspects of ISTDP into their practice.

I am also active in teaching ISTDP locally, nationally, and internationally. More information about Boston-area ISTDP events is available at

If you are interested in consultation, or having me teach, please contact me.

ISTDP is one of what are known as Experiential Dynamic Therapies (EDTs).  I am active in the broader EDT world, serving on the board of the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA), chairing its technology committee, and since 2018 serving as its President. A major IEDTA focus is our 2019 International Conference, which will take places in Boston, September 26-28.
