A Soulful Warrior's Six Session Journey to Transformation Through AEDP

This first of its kind, this seminar, presented in three 4.5-hour meetings, takes participants through an ex-army commander’s first six sessions of treatment with Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). Through lecture and the extensive use of video footage from each session, the presenter will recount their therapeutic journey, offering an extensive, naturalistic study of the experiential, relational, psychodynamic, healing centered elements of AEDP. AEDP schemas such as the four state model of change, the triangle of experience, the self-other-emotion triangle will be explored within the context of a sequential series of actual sessions. In addition to surveying the AEDP model specifically, the seminar will also illustrate the emergent, serpentine nature of therapeutic change and the dilemmas, errors and missed opportunities that typically occur in treatment.

This course is for 12.5 CE

Jerry Lamagna, LCSW is a senior faculty member with the AEDP Institute and a psychotherapist in private practice in Manhattan and Westfield, New Jersey. His early career focused specifically on treating adult children raised in alcoholic families, where exposure to clinical challenges associated with complex trauma inspired him to pursue training in approaches like psychodrama, EMDR, ego state therapy, trauma/dissociative disorder treatment, IFS and of course, AEDP.

In 2004, Jerry, along with Dr. Kari Gleiser developed a modified version of AEDP for the treatment of dissociative disorders. Since then, Jerry has authored three articles on AEDP and its application in treating complex trauma and in 2015 released a three DVD training video of his teaching and live clinical work. In addition to writing, supervising and providing psychotherapy, Jerry teaches AEDP in North America and Europe.
