Working with Defenses in AEDP
Guest Faculty: Diana Fosha, PhD

This module will be devoted to exploring what in AEDP we call “top of the triangle of experience” work or State 1 work, i.e., working with everything that stands in the way of dropping down into core affective experience. We will explore different AEDP strategies for working with defenses such as bypassing defenses; affirming defenses; working with defenses as a category of experience; restructuring defenses; and using intra-relational intervention (parts work) to work with defenses. We will also explore different AEDP strategies for anxiety regulation, for example how to use relational experience for anxiety regulation, and also what to so when using relational experience for anxiety regulation doesn’t do the trick.
