David Mars November 14 at 8:00am PST: AEDP for Couples: Micro-movement, Gesture and Body Cues that Accelerate Trauma Treatment 

AEDP for Couples: Micro-movement, Gesture and Body Cues that Accelerate Trauma Treatment 

We are thrilled to welcome David Mars, Ph.D., MFT, to the GAINS community as he leads us on an exploration to clarify and demonstrate how initially unconscious movement in individual treatment sessions can provide an access point for the acceleration of therapeutic work. David will make use of clinical video and didactic presentation to bring particular focus to change-moments in treatment, highlighting shifts in cognitive, energetic and relational awareness that move trauma treatment forward with momentum.

David draws from a wide range of research including the work of Bud Craig, Jaak Panksepp, Allan Shore, Antonio Damasio and others in order to substantiate the brain centers that underlie spontaneous body movement and its relationship to cognition and consciousness. Throughout his presentation, David will make ongoing reference to areas such as the anterior cingulate, the left and right insula, and the orbito-frontal cortex. David’s rich and artful clinical work leads his clients to be able to integrate and embody affect that was formerly inaccessible to consciousness.

David Mars, Ph.D. is the developer of AEDP For Couples. He has specialized in the somatically focused treatment of couples and groups for four decades, as an innovator in developing process-oriented, somatically, and empathically focused couple treatment. David has trained, supervised and consulted with Dr. Diana Fosha, the originator of AEDP since 2005.
