AEDP Institute

Beyond Healing: Harnessing Transformational Processes to Accelerate the Journey Into Flourishing.  

an AEDP New England Seminar
at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum in Lexington, MA
with Kari Gleiser, PhD

 

Note: This is a half-day seminar from 1:00 – 5:00pm


One of the most unique and revolutionary elements of AEDP’s emotional processing trajectory is the focus on the affective markers of the process of change itself.  While other emotion-focused therapies may elucidate theories and guide interventions that facilitate the movement from distress and defensive states to the full processing of core adaptive emotions, in AEDP, this is only the first step.  In this seminar, we will explore in depth the phenomenology and clinical unfolding of the process of transformation itself.  After the turbulence of intense emotional experiencing, how do therapists guide patients to keep the momentum moving through the full process of transformation?  How do we direct dyadic attention, use evocative language and disclose our own emotional experience to ignite and/or to fan the flames in the crucible of change?  How do we recognize when there is a tiny flicker of transformation in the air, grab onto it and help it to fully emerge?  We will explore these questions in the context of tracking the affective markers of transformation and core state (States 3 and 4) across two sessions of a patient with Complex PTSD and Dissociative Disorder NOS.  We will witness how the swell of powerful emotional experiences such as awe, gratitude and tremulousness herald a new way of apprehending self, other and the world.

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Detect and track verbal and nonverbal affective markers of the transformational process.
  • Arrange interventions to deepen patients through a full wave of emotional processing, including positive affective states that come in the wake of processing intense emotion.
  • Assemble skills in meta-processing interventions that keep patients moving through a full wave of emotional processing.

Meet the Presenter

Kari Gleiser, PhD

Kari Gleiser, PhD, completed her doctoral work at Boston University and her internship through Dartmouth Medical School with a focus on trauma and PTSD. In her practice, she specializes in applying AEDP to the treatment of complex trauma, dissociative disorders and personality disorders. Dr. Gleiser is the co-founder and co-director of the Center for Integrative Health in Hanover, New Hampshire, a trauma center dedicated to multi-modal healing of mind, body and spirit. She has served a term on the board of directors of the New England Society for the Treatment of Trauma and Dissociation (NESTTD), where she chaired a committee on education and outreach. In collaboration with Jerry Lamagna, Dr. Gleiser has developed an “intra-relational” model of therapy, which imports AEDP’s relational and experiential interventions to patients’ internal systems of dissociated self-states. Dr. Gleiser has written several clinical papers and book chapters and has presented on applying AEDP to treat dissociative disorders at various international conferences.
