AEDP™ SEMINAR LIVE ONLINE 2023: Ronald Frederick, PhD

Neuroplasticity in Action: Rewiring Internal Working Models of Attachment

March 17, 2023
12:30 – 3:30 pm Eastern Time USA

This seminar is intended for Psychologists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors/Marriage and Family Therapists, Creative Arts Therapists. Course Content Level: Beginner + Intermediate + Advanced


Description:

Early lessons about emotion and connection form instructional blueprints that get stored in memory systems outside of our awareness. Left unchallenged, they persist into adulthood and directly affect the ways we respond to our emotions and how we interact in our intimate relationships. With its focus on the here-and-now relational experience, the AEDP model of psychotherapy is ideally suited to unlocking and reworking internal working models of attachment. This workshop will focus on both the theory and technique of the AEDP model, making extensive use of videotaped material to illustrate how we can help our clients break free from old patterns and realize a broader range of personal and relational possibilities. In particular, we will examine and explore how therapeutic affective engagement and disclosure be maximized to help facilitate emotional and relational transformation.

Main Points of Seminar:

  • Early lessons about emotion and connection form implicit models that unconsciously color one’s experience and guides behavior.
  • Implicit learnings become malleable when activated and can be transformed by disconfirming experiences.
  • The relational work of the AEDP model provides an opportunity for the reworking of internal working models.
  • Defense work is needed to allow new experiences to be taken in or “received.”
  • Use of the therapist’s self is central to providing a new, disconfirming relational experience, also key to memory reconsolidation.
  • Reflection, as in metaprocessing, not only furthers transformation but can be maximized to integrate new learning and updates early conditioning.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the essential components of an internal working model of self and other.
  • 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 neuroplasticity and demonstrate how they can be put to good use in psychotherapy.
  • Understand the essential elements needed to promote emotional processing and memory reconsolidation and how to make use of them in therapy.
