Doing Short Term Intensive Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (STIPP) - An Introduction

Dr Joan Haliburn

STIPP has a history that goes back to the 1950’s – pioneers were Luborsky, Malan, Basch, Abbass and others. I will give a brief overview of a model of STIPP which was the outcome of my attendance at short term therapy training workshops overseas and the use of important principles of the Conversational Model derived from my training. I developed this way of working over many years in my private practice with adolescents and adults. It is being taught as a 28 week part time short course at the psychotherapy training unit since 2011. STIPP is recommended for a wide variety of patients seen in day to day clinical work, so long as they meet the assessment criteria which I will outline. A history of trauma is not an exclusion factor.
