11/04 & 07/2022: AEDP: The Process of Change and Its Spirit in Practice

AEDP: The Process of Change and Its Spirit in Practice

AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) is an integrative transformational therapy model that uses relational work, experiential techniques and a focus on change and healing, in order to alleviate emotional suffering and promote resilience and flourishing. Drawing upon research in neuroplasticity, affective neuroscience, developmental research into caregiver infant interaction, Darwinian emotion theory and transformational studies, AEDP navigates the complex interactions between positive and negative emotions towards psychological growth and adaptation.

Course description: 

In the last few years, AEDP has grown exponentially. Why? What chord does AEDP strike in people? And what is it that resonates with therapists worldwide?

Diana Fosha, the founder of AEDP, believes the answer lies not only in AEDP’s theory and specific modes of intervention, but also fundamentally within AEDP’s ethos and value—or its spirit. It is about the quest that animates each session to (i) bring forth healing within each person; (ii) undo aloneness; (iii) transform emotional suffering; and (iv) sow the seeds of flourishing.

This workshop will explore how AEDP uses interventions and practices like transformance detection, dyadic affect regulation, experiential work with relational experience, and processing emotions to a corrective emotional and/or relational experience. In addition, participants will learn how to use AEDP’s metatherapeutic processing—a systematic methodology to help clients flourish during and after sessions. We will even track change over time using videotaped recordings of AEDP therapy sessions with a 19-year-old client who experienced significant big T and relational trauma. Through witnessing a complete 6-session therapy, participants will be able to grasp both the spirit of AEDP, its methods, and how AEDP promotes change while also deepening their learning of the AEDP model.

Learning objectives:  

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be better able to —

  • Define transformance and how it relates to positive neuroplasticity
  • Demonstrate an AEDP therapist stance: welcome, affirm, validate, orient
  • Construct safety and undo aloneness
  • Apply moment-to-moment tracking to clinical practice
  • Construct dyadic safety and connection
  • Build and rebuild a secure attachment
  • Integrate healing and transformance from the get-go
  • Classify different aspects within the Triangle of Experience, including both verbal and somatic processes, to optimize attunement and accelerate the healing process
  • Relate the experience of emotional experience: processing emotions to completion
  • Analyze the 4 State Transformational Process: Working with relational trauma in a first session
  • Integrate Meta-therapeutic processing and transformational processes

Format: two 90-minute sessions broken by a 15-minute break
