AEDP Immersion Course - New York, NY 2017

Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is one of the fastest growing approaches to working with attachment trauma. Its transformational theory, a basis for putting neuroplasticity and attachment theory into clinical action, is similarly receiving increasing recognition.

Until recently, the mental health field focused on pathology and lacked concepts to capture the motivational strivings for health. Drawing on neuroscience and developmental research, AEDP rectifies this bias towards pathology. AEDP asserts that we are wired for healing, self-righting and for resuming impeded growth.

This will be an interactive workshop: a collaborative process will be entrained between the presenters and workshop participants to support the emergence of the positive transformational phenomena that are at the heart of AEDP.
 

Presenter

DIANA FOSHA, Ph.D., is the developer of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential DynamicPsychotherapy), a healing-based, transformation-oriented model of psychotherapeutic treatment; she is Founder and Director of the AEDP Institute. Based in New York City, she is on the faculty of the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology of NYU and St. Luke's/Roosevelt Medical Centers in NYC.

Diana Fosha is the author of The transforming power of affect: A model for accelerated change (Basic Books, 2000), and of numerous articles on an attachment-emotion-transformation- focused experiential treatment model. She is senior editor, with Daniel Siegel and Marion Solomon, of The Healing power of emotion: Affective neuroscience, development & clinical practice (Norton, 2009), part of Norton’s Interpersonal Neurobiology series.

Diana has contributed chapters to, among others, Clinical pearls of wisdom: 21 leading therapists offer their key insights, edited by M. Kerman (Norton, 2009); Complex traumatic stress disorders: An evidence-based clinician's guide, edited by C. Courtois & J. D. Ford (Guilford, 2009); Healing trauma: Attachment, mind, body and brain, edited by Marion Solomon and Daniel Siegel (Norton, 2003); and to The comprehensive handbook of psychotherapy, Volume 1: Psychodynamic and object relations therapies, edited by J. J. Magnavita (Wiley, 2002).

 

Main Points:

  1. Participants will be able to explain the key clinical concepts, theoretical contributions, and the credo of AEDP.
  2. Participants will be able to define Transformance and apply it to psychotherapy.
  3. Participants will be able to explain the self-other-emotion triangle and identify the four States and three State Transformations of AEDP.
  4. Participants will be able to discuss the role of healthy attachment and attachment trauma in health and psychopathology, as well as identify the right brain processes engaged in the process of attachment.
  5. Participants will be able to use experiential techniques to help a client process intense, previously warded off emotional experiences.
  6. Participants will be able to identify the three elements of dyadic affect regulation: attunement, disruption, and repair and to define dyadic affect regulation in clinical work.
  7. Participants will be able to define metaprocessing, identify the five metatherapeutic processes, and recognize transformational markers and the phenomenology of the healing affects.
