Course Description:

AEDP has always been a multifaceted transformational therapy. Naturally occurring, adaptive, affective change processes have always been at the heart of AEDP’s healing oriented, radically relational, transformational practice. And, the clinical, practice-based theory of AEDP has also grown: It has expanded, deepened and been put to the test hundreds of thousands of times in transformational moments between patients and us, their AEDP therapists, worldwide.

With the advent of empirical research into AEDP’s effectiveness (Iwakabe et al, 2020), the need to systematize, codify and measure outcome and process in AEDP therapy has led to the development of what we have come to call The Magnificent 9 +1 Affective Change Processes Scale. This scale describes what makes AEDP, and why it’s proving to be so effective for so many patients.  This scale describes what makes AEDP AEDP, and attempts to capture what makes it effective for so many patients. These discrete AEDP affective change processes provide the scaffolding for AEDP’s clinical practice and transformational theory. They in essence operationalize and account for how change takes place in AEDP.

This course explores 9 affective change processes specific to AEDP, as well as the mystery “+1”. The 9 affective change processes are: i. Transformance detection & affirmation of the self; ii. Noticing & seizing a moment of change for the better; iii.  Undoing aloneness; iv. Facilitating access to bodily-based experience; v. Working to dismantle defenses; vi. Dyadic affect regulation; vii. Experientially processing core affective experience, aiming toward a corrective emotional experience; viii. Broadening & building transformational experience, i.e., metatherapeutic processing; ix. Promoting integration and processing core state experiences.

This Advanced Skills training is in keeping with the AEDP model: from experience comes insight and meaning. Insight and meaning are incredibly important and indeed transformational, but understanding follows from experience. Which is why we are teaching the fundamentals of AEDP’s transformational theory at the end of your advanced ES2 training, not at the beginning. Now that you have had so much training in AEDP and so many experiences with and in AEDP, this is an opportunity to reflect and integrate and experience (via the realization affects) that a new and deeper understanding has the potential to re-organize everything that came before it, and thus can lead to more rounds of the transformational spiral.

Course Objectives:

  • Describe the nine essential components of AEDP’s Magnificent 9 + 1 affective change processes
  • Recognize the different ways in which early relational learning shows up in the here-and-now experience of the client.
  • List the factors that foster positive neuroplasticity and demonstrate how they can be put to good use in psychotherapy.
  • Explain and demonstrate how AEDP’s technique of undoing aloneness can be used to disconfirm early learning and promote a corrective relational experience in therapy.
  • Understand the essential elements needed to promote emotional processing and working toward a corrective emotional experience and how to make use of them in therapy.
  • Explain and demonstrate how metaprocessing can be maximized to deepen transformation and the integration of new learning.
  • Interpret and unpack the “+1” Unmasked: The Spirit of AEDP
