The Bonds That Free Us: Working With Attachment Explicitly & Experientially in AEDP
Guest Faculty: Kari Gleiser, PhD

In the past decade, the rapidly evolving fields of attachment studies and developmental neuroscience have revolutionized our conceptualization of how relationships shape the human mind from infancy through adulthood. These theories now inform our understanding of psychopathology as well the transformative poteantial of the therapeutic relationship. However, theories don’t automatically translate into practice; specific clinical interventions are necessary to harness the power of the therapy relationship to effect healing and change. In this module, we will focus on learning and practicing AEDP’s explicit relational interventions such as: recognizing and bypassing relational defenses, enhancing receptive capacity, fostering safety and intimacy from the get-go, using therapeutic self-disclosure, processing relational affects, and meta-processing present moment relational experiences.
