This is a five-day combined Immersion and Essential Skills course in the AEDP for Couples method.  The course will culminate with two afternoon supervision sub-groups on Friday July 15.  The course will be co-taught by David Mars, Ph.D. and Karen Pando-Mars, MFT both senior faculty of the AEDP Institute.  David Mars is the developer of AEDP for Couples who has presented the model in seminars, workshops and conferences nationally and internationally since 2008.  He has been lead faculty of the AEDP for Couples Core Training in the SF Bay area, which is now in its fourth year.  Karen Pando-Mars practices and supervises in the AEDP for Couples method and has been the guest faculty in the AEDP for Couples Core Training since its inception.  She has also been the lead faculty for AEDP Essential Skills courses for four years.

This course will present the theory and practice of AEDP For Couples and will provide experiential exercises to help participants somatically track and affectively regulate two people at a time in couple’s treatment.  AEDP for Couples is a powerful, somatically-oriented and affective neuroscience and attachment-based method.  Left-brain and right-brain learning will be combined to equip you to effectively treat couples with greater confidence, enjoyment and ease.

The skill sets necessary to practice AEDP for Couples will be introduced with theoretical foundations and videotape illustrations in the morning, followed by group experiential exercises in the afternoon.   Participants will cultivate accessing the Seven Channels of Experience and will practice methods to most effectively create safety and amplify the felt experience of love in couple’s treatment.
