Rescheduled from March
Discussant: Diana Fosha, PhD
Aloneness in the face of overwhelming emotion is the epicenter of emotional suffering. Attempts to deal with it result in psychopathology that brings patients to seek help. Attachment is key to undoing that aloneness so that previously feared-to-be overwhelming emotions can be processed and thus trauma transformed. Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), one of the fastest growing approaches to working with attachment trauma, has developed rich, creative, systematic interventions for doing precisely that: undoing the patient’s aloneness. AEDP is fearless in working with the experience of the patient-therapist attachment, moment-to-moment tracking and processing it rigorously.
Diana Fosha, Ph.D. is the renowned developer of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), and founder and current director of the AEDP Institute, an internationally recognized school that specializes in training therapists in a healing-oriented transformational approach to the treatment of attachment trauma. With an interest in the phenomenology of experience, Dr. Fosha is on the cutting edge of transformational theory and practice.
Learning objectives (participants will learn to...)
- Use dyadic affect regulation in working with clients’ previously feared-to-be-unbearable emotions.
- Identify the 4 states and 3 state transformations of the transformational process.
- Demonstrate knowledge of how to use the somatic/affective markers of transformational experience in guiding the therapeutic process.
