Evolutionary Psychology in Clinical Practice

This workshop presents Interpersonal Stance Theory (IST), developed at the Integrative Therapy Institute of New Jersey. It covers basic concepts in evolutionary psychology, including modules and critical periods, and how Interpersonal Stances are determined by evolution. It explains how Stances become features of personality, and the emotions, thoughts, and behaviors that accompany them. Participants learn to use IST in treatment using case vignettes, and to educate patients about their own stance patterns and those of others to improve their functioning and relationships. Please go to if interested to more about IST and CIP.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
