Course Information

Reclaiming the Core Self through Fierce Love

Working with entrenched defenses, pathogenic affects and trauma states isn’t easy. It requires a strong therapeutic presence: leading boldly; co-regulating, psychobiologically attuning to our patients, our self, and the dyad moment-to-moment.

It requires tenaciously advocating and championing our patients’ capacity to heal and be whole when they see and feel nothing but darkness. It requires building capacity within our SELVES to “be with” and “stay with” deep emotional pain, grief, shame, rage, unbearable states of aloneness.

In short, it requires “Fierce Love.”

Fierce Love is a relationally bold therapeutic stance that assiduously champions the patient’s Core Self, breaks through entrenched defenses and transforms pathogenic self states, with a loving and finely targeted psychobiological attunement that reclaims the Core Self and restores one’s birthright of love.

In this course, we will explore how to heal and reclaim the self that has splintered under the impact of trauma by using the Core Self of the therapist as an active, healing agent.

We will learn techniques that go beyond classic practice to create a therapeutic alliance that is grounded in secure attachment and is actively reparative, using specific, fine-tuned clinical interventions that lead to memory reconsolidation, self restructuring, and deep characterological change.

This course is a lived experience. Through lecture, viewing patient videotape under a fine-tuned microscopic clinical lens, and lively discussion, you will come to learn how the most powerful tool in your clinical toolbox is courageously lending your own Core Self to your patients’ healing process.

I look forward to sharing Fierce Love with you and helping you turbocharge your work with clients who have experienced the deepest of trauma wounds.

Target Audience

This AEDP course is open to all Licensed Mental Health Providers including Counselors, Doctors, Nurses, Psychoanalysts, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Social Workers, other Behavioral Health Therapists and related professionals. Level: Beginner/Intermediate

 

Course Objectives:

  • Demonstrate how to be more affectively engaged, psychobiologically attuned, relationally courageous—i.e. how to apply Fierce Love in your work with patients
  • Summarize what therapeutic presence really means—being inside the patient’s world and our patients knowing it, feeling it, and viscerally registering it—and the integral part it plays in transforming the Self.
  • Utilize and champion the Core Self to work with the Adult Self to heal the Wounded Self (the amalgam of child/trauma parts)
  • Demonstrate what we really mean by “undoing aloneness”, e.g. how to really “be there” “bear witness” and “be with” our patients in these unbearable states of pain, terror, and utter aloneness in order to transform these trauma states
  • Explain and show how to reliably use your Self as the corrective emotional experience for your patients (e.g. through judicious self disclosure of feelings and patient’s impact on you, etc.)
  • Demonstrate and promote and enhance Memory Reconsolidation 
  • Apply micro-attunement and moment-to-moment tracking skills, fundamental ingredients in helping clients heal
  • Discover the central place of pathogenic affects (e.g. feelings of worthlessness, toxic shame) in trauma
  • Develop clinical skills for working with “child/trauma parts” to facilitate self-to-self healing
  • Demonstrate how to pendulate, co-regulate and provide dyadic affect regulation, essential clinical ingredients in working with trauma
  • Discover how to transform core erroneous beliefs about Self and Other through structural rebuilding of the Self and uncoupling dynamics
  • Discover the ways in which your own “affect phobias” and discomfort with emotional closeness and self regard may be impacting your clinical work.
  • Use your own emotional pain, your own resonant experiences, to deepen and enhance the healing process.
