Emotion Center Copenhagen invites you to:

The First International Core-Training
in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy
with a focus on couples and families

By Leone Baruh, Italy

February 2020 – 2023

Special Core-training group with Leone Baruh in Copenhagen 2020

Emotion Center Copenhagen is thrilled to host the first 3-year Core-training in Denmark, focused on the application of ISTDP to couples and families, with Leone Baruh.

The group will follow the conventional Core-training format with approximately 10 participants meeting 4 times per year for 3 days, totaling 12 days per year. Beside the official meetings of the Coregroup, 4 optional peer-supervision meetings will be held between the blocks of the Core-training. The first block of the Core-group will each year be Leone’s Immersion in Copenhagen, continued by 3 blocks of 3 days throughout the year.


The group welcomes therapists of all level of experience and skill, and will have a special focus on the application of ISTDP in working with couples and families, as well as enriching individual therapy with an understanding of couple- and family dynamics. The group offers the attendee, both an excellent opportunity to learn ISTDP from this master practitioner and to further expand his/her practice to include work with couples and families.

Tutoring and Peer supervision

As part of the training, newcomers to ISTDP will be offered 6 hours per year of tutoring by the therapists at the Emotion Center. Beside the official meetings of the Core-group, 4 peer-supervision meetings will be held between the blocks of the Core-training.


The core-training will be officially recognized by the International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association (IEDTA), granting the attendee the title of IEDTA-certified practitioner upon completion.

Meeting plan

The first official meeting of the group will be this year’s Immersion course, but should there be vacant spaces in the Core-group, it is possible for participants at the Immersion to apply for inclusion in the Core-group after the Immersion, but before the 2nd block of the core-group. The group’s schedule will be set for a year at a time. The schedule for 2020 will be somewhat flexible, to accommodate all participants, but we suggest the following dates:

  • 27-28-29 February 2020: 3 days of Immersion (for the Core-group this counts as the first block of the year).
  • (May 2020: Peer supervision day)
  • 25-26-27 June 2020: 3 days of core training (2nd block)
  • (August 2020: Peer supervision day)
  • 10-11-12 September 2020: 3 days of core training (3rd block)
  • (October 2020: Peer supervision day)
  • 26-27-28 November 2020: 3 days of core training (4th block)
  • (January 2021: Peer supervision day)
