I consider Jon Frederickson, MSW, to be one of the rare masters of both practicing and teaching the art and science of psychotherapy in the world today. My feelings about his work can best be captured by the seemingly endless standing ovation that he received at a recent international conference in Denmark. He exquisitely attunes to the multi-layered experience of both clients and students and has had a profoundly healing and growth-producing impact on a great many lives, including my own. He is a brilliant, intensely passionate and compassionate contributor to our field.

Ever since I have been Chair of the Clinical Program one thing is a constant: RAVE reviews for Jon Frederickson. He earns these reviews for the profound and practice changing content of what he teaches, and his active, engaging and charismatic teaching style. Jon is truly a phenomenon.

Jon Frederickson is a world-class psychotherapy instructor, and a master at unlocking the therapeutic impasse. He presents highly complex and subtle subjects in a clear and accessible manner. Just as importantly, Jon’s teaching style is very supportive and considerate. Learning ISTDP can be very personally challenging, even for advanced therapists, and it’s important to have an instructor who teaches with respect and compassion for his students. I highly recommend Jon Frederickson to anyone who wants to take their psychotherapy skills to a higher level.
