Transform Trauma through Fierce Love:
Using the AEDP Therapist’s Bold, Embodied Presence

Being an AEDP therapist requires not just learning the theory or the techniques, but also building the knowledge, awareness, and capacity within our SELFs to “be with” and “stay with,” the depth of emotional pain, shame, anger, grief, unbearable aloneness…

It requires a strong therapeutic presence; leading boldly, fiercely advocating and championing our patients’ in a verbally and affectively explicit way; finding and “gluing the glimmers” of light when your patients see and feel nothing but darkness within them.

It requires accompanying our patients on emotional journeys that we ourselves may never have been on (and perhaps avoiding because we, too, are afraid to touch that guarded space within us).

It requires that we tend to not just our patients’ affective and relational wounds, but also our own.

In short, being an AEDP therapist requires the courage to practice from the “inside out.” Not an easy task.

In this workshop, we will explore in-depth how to bring our SELFs more fully into the therapeutic relationship in order to enhance, deepen and accelerate the healing process.

Through lecture, videotape, and live demos you will see, hear, and witness how the most powerful tool in our clinical toolkit is our own embodied presence.
