SEMINAR: SueAnne Piliero, Paris France

The Transformation of Emotional Suffering: Undoing Aloneness & Reclaiming One’s Core Authentic Self in AEDP

(with extensive use of videotaped clinical sessions)

an AEDP Europe Seminar
with SueAnne Piliero, PhD

This course is for Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.


AEDP is one of the fastest growing therapeutic approaches to working with attachment trauma. Its transformational theory, a basis for putting neuroplasticity and attachment theory into clinical action, is receiving increasing recognition worldwide.

Why is AEDP gaining popularity around the world?  Until recently, the mental health field focused on pathology and lacked concepts to capture the motivational strivings for health. Drawing on neuroscience and developmental research, AEDP rectifies this bias towards pathology. AEDP asserts that we are wired for healing, self-righting and for resuming impeded growth.

Building on our natural resilience, AEDP’S therapeutics is based on these innate healing capacities. AEDP’s clinical model shows how to entrain our innate resilience and harness it in treatment. Emphasizing the importance of experiential work with attachment, emotion and transformation, AEDP leverages safety and connection within the therapist-client relationship to facilitate healing through moment-to-moment tracking of the therapeutic process and innovative, experiential intervention strategies.

Videtapes of actual clinical AEDP sessions will be viewed to demonstrate how (i) through the moment-to-moment tracking of bodily rooted experience and dyadic affect regulation (ii) in the context of a relationship in which the individual feels safe and known, (iii) the processing of suffering, i.e., stress-based, traumatizing, painful emotional experiences,  (iv) repairs relational trauma, frees the patient’s fully functioning core self, and (v) naturally culminates in flourishing, i.e., deeply positive experiences of aliveness, hope, faith, clarity, agency, simplicity, compassion, joy, and truth. Key to this is the focus on and experiential processing of the experience of healing transformation in the context of a healing dyad.

In this two-day training, therapists will learn how to:

  • Rapidly promote the development of a secure attachment relationship
  • Transform anxiety and shame and work with defenses
  • Facilitate and regulate a client’s body-based experiencing of emotion
  • Target and repair relational pathology and reconnect patients to their core authentic self
  • Identify the phenomenology of transformational experience

This two-day workshop will be simultaniaously translated from English into French by bilingual psychologists trained in AEDP for those participants who will wish to (translation helmets).  Participants understanding English well can listen to the event directly in english.

La Transformation de la Souffrance Emotionnelle : Dénouer le sentiment de solitude & recouvrer son Soi authentique avec l’AEDP

(nombreuses présentations de séances de thérapie vidéo)

Participants : cette formation est réservée à tous les professionnels de la santé mentale (médecins, psychiatres, psychologues, psychothérapeutes, psychanalystes….) indépendamment du leur niveau de compétence et/ou expertise.


L’AEDP  représente l’une des approches psychothérapeutiques, qui connaît l’un des développements les plus rapides pour travailler avec les traumatismes liés à l’attachement. Sa théorie sur la transformation, qui place neuroplasticité et théorie de l’attachement au sein de l’action clinique, rencontre une reconnaissance mondiale de plus en plus forte.

Quelles sont les raisons de cette popularité à travers le monde ? Jusqu’à récemment le monde de la santé mentale se focalisait sur la pathologie et était dépourvu de concepts pour saisir les forces motrices du bien être physique et mental. S’appuyant sur la recherche en neurosciences et en psychologie du développement, l’AEDP réforme les biais attribués à la pathologie. L’AEDP affirme que nous possédons biologiquement les ressources pour guérir, pour nous relever et reprendre tout développement interrompu.

Fort de cette résilience naturelle, la thérapeutique AEDP est fondée sur les capacités innées de guérison. Le modèle clinique de l’AEDP indique la manière d’entraîner notre résilience innée et l’arrimer au traitement. En mettant l’emphase sur l’importance du travail expérientiel lié à l’attachement, l’émotion et la transformation, l’AEDP tire parti de la sécurité et de la connexion développées au sein de la relation entre le thérapeute et le patient pour faciliter le mieux-être. Celui-ci se développe à travers le suivi minute après minute du processus thérapeutique et des stratégies d’interventions expérientielles.

Des vidéos de réelles séances cliniques seront présentées pour démontrer le suivi minute après minute de l’expérience ancrée physiquement et de la régulation (ii) de l’affect au sein de la dyade relationnelle. Ainsi, l’AEDP permet à la personne de se sentir en sécurité et reconnue, (iii) d’élaborer toute souffrance par exemple stress, traumatisme, expériences émotionnelles douloureuses, (iv) de réparer le traumatisme relationnel, de libèrer pleinement le fonctionnement fondamental de son Self et (v) d’aboutir naturellement à son point culminant pour éclore, par exemple en expériences profondément positives telles que la vivacité, l’espoir, la foi, la clarté, le sentiment d’être acteur, la simplicité, la compassion, la joie et la vérité. Le focus et l’élaboration expérientiels du vécu de la transformation au sein de la dyade, qui soigne, s’avèrent clés pour y parvenir.

Dans cette formation de deux jours, les thérapeutes apprendront à :

  • rapidement développer une relation d’attachement sécure
  • transformer l’anxiété et la honte en travaillant avec les défenses
  • faciliter et réguler le patient dans son expérience émotionnelle ancrée physiquement
  • cibler et réparer la pathologie relationnelle et renouer le patient avec son Self authentique et fondamental
  • identifier la phénoménologie de l’expérience de transformation

Ce séminaire de deux jours sera traduit de l’anglais en français par des professionnels bilingues formés à l’AEDP.

AEDP for Couples: Transforming Relationships through Healing Relational Deprivation and Trauma

an AEDP Vancouver Seminar
with David Mars, PhD

 

This course is for Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.


The movement from fear to love and from survival to thriving, is the expression of transformance: the indwelling biological drive to evolve. (Fosha 2008, Mars 2011).

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a somatically-based model of psychotherapy with roots in attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, emotion theory and transformational studies.  David Mars, Ph.D. has expanded upon Dr. Diana Fosha’s model to develop AEDP for Couples, which treats the relational trauma and deprivation that often underlies dysfunctional patterns in couple’s lives. By creating a safe container within which even highly dysregulated couples can learn to thrive together, AEDPfC helps to create nutritive experiences of somatically-based responsiveness between partners that begin in the first session.

David will illustrate how to work with couples to build bridges of relational safety and intimacy that generate increased earned secure attachment. Clinical videotapes of treatment sessions over time will demonstrate the transformative processes central to AEDPfC. David will help you to quickly identify and more effectively treat deactivating (avoidant) and hyper-activating (anxious/ambivalent) attachment patterns.  He will highlight the therapist’s use of self in working with chronically traumatized and reactive couples. This workshop will feature unique methods of detecting and amplifying the greatest strengths of each couple member through cultivating moment-to-moment whole body awareness within each couple member and the therapist as well.  In these ways the therapist’s own somatic awareness and joy in the work grows and thrives right along with the couple.

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Name the four states of AEDP
  • Identify three ways to begin to establish a secure base in the first session of treatment
  • Describe two ways to regulate emotional reactivity in each couple member when either is triggered
  • Name the Seven Channels of Experience (Sensation, Emotion, Energetic, Movement, Auditory, Visual and Imaginal)

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Use the earliest signs of hyper-reactivity and dorsal vagal response to discover the access points to treat underlying trauma.
  • Cultivate and expand upon your own inner gifts as a therapist.
  • Facilitate healing portrayals that can bring lasting relief of buried traumatic wounding.
  • Bring more peace, justice and respectful recognition into couples daily lives.

Meet the Presenter

David Mars, M.F.T., Ph.D.

davidmars-copyDavid 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.

David develops and presents training seminars and workshops nationally and internationally that focus on the AEDP for Couples model.  He is the lead supervisor of the AEDP for Couples Core Training.  He teaches at AEDP Immersion Courses, the Essential Skills Program and leads two ongoing AEDP for Couples supervision groups.  He is one of the founders of AEDP West. David is also on the adjunct faculty of the California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco where he infused AEDP into his teaching of courses on the Clinical Relationship.

David’s style as a presenter is described as inspiring, warm and deeply personable.   He quickly evokes trust from his audiences, which ushers in a deep level of transparent exchange of ideas and points of view about how therapists can more effectively treat the historical trauma and deprivation that underlies marital dysfunction.  Perhaps most importantly, participants are moved to apply what they learn in these training programs, due to the depth of experience they take in while witnessing videos, live demonstrations and engaging in experiential practices.

SEMINAR: Steve Shapiro, PhD - San Francisco, CA

Transforming Resistance: Working with the Challenges of Defense & Anxiety

an AEDP Seminar
at Hospice by the Bay, Larkspur, CA
with Steve Shapiro, PhD

This course is for Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.


Ironically, many clients interfere with the very progress they seek either through their own resistance to the psychotherapy process or because their anxiety is too high and there is too much dysregulation to use the process effectively. Not infrequently, they terminate prematurely before reaching their goals.  This results in tragic consequences for the client, as well as frustration and a sense of failure for the therapist. While clients enter treatment with conscious motivation, resistance is unconscious and, therefore, difficult to address without a coherent system. Therapists typically interpret resistance in a personal way becoming confused, frustrated, and hopeless, with a tendency to hold the client responsible and label him/her as “unmotivated or resistant”. Participants will learn to move beyond resistance and simple symptom management into deep, transformational processes that releases resources of health and resilience. Learn to accelerate treatment using innovative techniques that implore clients to abandon chronic coping patterns that were once necessary, but have long outlived their usefulness and are now causing untoward suffering.

Therapists offer the promise of help often based on the presumption that the client will arrive with sufficient initial motivation, openness and willingness to face painful realities. Frequently this is not the case. Clinicians are rarely adequately prepared to address resistance directly and therapeutically, making it difficult to help more challenging clients.  Defenses can be seen as “a problem,” rather than an inevitable part of the process; defense restructuring can mistakenly be understood as an adversarial task, that we then avoid, rather than a compassionate and collaborative venture.

Therapists of all orientations and levels of experience will gain a clear understanding of the nature and function of defences, and ways to transform them therapeutically so clients can align with the healthy, buried and previously inaccessible internal resources, as well as effective ways to regulate anxiety when it is too high. The principles taught can be readily integrated with your existing orientation and skill set. By adopting an active, focused, precise, experiential, attachment-based and emotionally engaged stance, therapists can create the safety and attunement necessary for patients to risk abandoning their resistance and shift to healthier functioning. The ultimate goal is to accelerate the healing process for clients, but also to help clinicians practice in a way that substantially reduces counter transference, is deeply rewarding, effective, and authentic, fully compatible with your personal and professional history.

Learning Objectives:

  • construct reliable, internal clinical maps that will flexibly and accurately guide assessment of the patient and, consequently, therapist interventions/ clinical stance, particularly understanding the difference between high anxiety and high defense.
  • demonstrate the ability to respond in the moment effectively to the patient’s need based on a moment to moment psychodiagnostic assessment of various aspects of the patient’s experience, especially considering whether the patient is responding with high anxiety or high defense
  • relate practical clinical skills as rapidly as possible to  function in an effective, deep and efficient manner (technique).
  • create a therapy style that is not only effective, accelerated and reduces suffering as rapidly as possible (patient benefit), but that is authentic and unique for each individual clinician, based on his both his/her professional experience/orientation, as well as his/her personality.  (professional development).
  • integrate therapist awareness of his/her emotional reactions in various scenarios, to develop greater affect/anxiety tolerance, to welcome and use countertransference in a positive/effective manner (personal/emotional)
