Cascade of Transformation: Restoring Resilience Using Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy

With Eileen M. Russell, PhD

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a healing-oriented, attachment- and neuroscience-based model of therapeutic change. Psychodynamic in theoretical foundation and affect-oriented and experiential in approach, AEDP assumes that even psychopathology reflects a person’s best efforts at adaptation. It also assumes that wired into our humanity are strivings for growth, connection, and healing. AEDP seeks to facilitate a new, corrective emotional experience with the client from the outset of therapy and to establish a secure attachment relationship, in which bodily-rooted experiences of emotion, relatedness, and self can be processed and reflected upon. AEDP is always on the lookout for resilience and transformation–both to support resilience and transformation and to use them to help clients who are stuck, struggling or suffering.

These plenary presentations will introduce AEDP theory and techniques. Using videotape of live sessions with a range of clients, Eileen Russell will demonstrate this powerful model of healing, offer applications of this model for use in our practices, and engage with us in theological reflection on the dynamics of therapeutic change.

This presentation is a part of the AAPC Southeast Region Annual Meeting. For more information, please contact Angela Allison-Davis. Registration closed.
