Habib Davanloo (born October 10, 1927) is a psychoanalyst and psychiatric researcher, of Iranian descent, and working in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, who developed Intensive short-term dynamic psychotherapy(ISTDP). He was Professor of Psychiatry (now Emeritus) at McGill University[1][2] and founding editor of the International Journal of Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Davanloo was a psychiatric resident under Erich Lindemann, a German psychiatrist who specialized in the treatment of bereaved and traumatized patients.[4]

Career[edit]

Davanloo was the director of the Institute for Teaching and Research in Short-term and Dynamic Psychotherapy at the Montreal General Hospital.[5] In 1962 he began to develop his technique for treating patients on a short-term basis,[6] creating and studying videotapes of sessions. He later gave seminars about his research and made the videotapes available.[7][8]

Davanloo's methods, which according to some authors were based on resolving Oedipal conflicts,[9] were widely discussed in psychiatric literature and[10] successfully used by many other therapists.[11][12]
