J Clin Psychol 2021 02 21;77(2):398-413. Epub 2021 Jan 21.

Faculty of Medicine, Centre for Emotions and Health, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy (ISTDP) was developed to manage treatment impasses preventing the experiencing of feelings related to childhood attachment interruptions, such as parental loss. According to ISTDP theory, certain categories of patients will exhibit habitual patterns of responding within the treatment relationship (called defenses) to certain anxiety-provoking thoughts and feelings. Such defensive behaviors interrupt awareness of one's own feelings, self-directed compassion and engagement in close human attachments, including the bond with the therapist. Read More

Moreover, the relationship between P300 and specific clinical characteristics of depression is uncertain. Read More
