Healing Attachment Wounds: Introduction to
Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)
Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) engages clients in the process of healing from the first moment of therapy. AEDP focuses on somatic experience, emotion and the therapy relationship to melt defences, process emotion that is frozen and awaken innate healing energy. Dale will present the four-state model of change and the very unique elements that AEDP brings that accelerate healing. Videotape of a therapy session will demonstrate how Dale applies AEDP with a client to help him move from a distant and defended stance to softening and the release of emotion. You will leave this two-hour workshop with some practical and powerful skills for your work as a therapist.
 
SaturdaySeptember 9, 2017 
Danny Yeung, MD
Experience of Awe in Psychotherapy: Working wwith Spirituality in AEDP
In this workshop, presenter Danny Yeung, MD, will demonstrate how, in AEDP, awe and spiritual experience can emerge as part of the healing process. Through lecture and video illustrations of clinical sessions, Dr. Yeung will provide a theoretical framework of AEDP and the essential skills required to accompany the client through the transformational process, where regulated by the emotional presence of a caring and empathic therapist, the patient emerges from the experience with a sense of relief, lightness and hope.

Particular attention will be paid to the Third and Fourth States of the model. The Third State, focusing on the experience of transformation includes the emotional pain of mourning-the-self, the emergence of healing affects, and a new understanding of Self and other.  State Four, Core State, is marked by emotional serenity, wisdom, the sense of things being ‘right’ and the truth sense. Enriched with mental clarity and coherence, experiencing core state provides the patient with the opportunity to create a new, adaptive and transcending autobiographical narrative.

Dr. Yeung will also be addressing the application AEDP to Asian cultures.
 

SundaySeptember 10, 2017
Danny Yeung, MD & Dale Trimble, MA
Master Class and Supervision Workshoplimited to 25 participantsThis is an advanced training event for those who have attended the AEDP Immersion or Essential Skills courses. The group is limited to 25 and there will be the opportunity for a few participants (3-4) to show tape of their work and receive feedback from Danny Yeung and Dale Trimble. Your tapes do not need to have State 3 & 4 work as a focus. They can be of a client you are struggling with how to engage more deeply. Equally welcome is a tape that shows work you are very proud of and want to understand more deeply. A strong emphasis will be placed on creating safety and an open-hearted atmosphere as we all share transformance strivings, of both our clients and ourselves.

ES1: Jeanne Newhouse & SueAnne Piliero – New York, NY

ES1: Jeanne Newhouse & SueAnne Piliero - New York, NY

ES1 Retreat Style Course in NYC 2018

May & October 2018

This course is for Psychotherapists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFT’s, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.

Healing-oriented and attachment-based, AEDP’s practice translates current neuroscience and developmental research into moment-to-moment clinical practice. Simultaneously experiential and relational in its in-depth emotional explorations, AEDP’s interventions are deeply rooted in the dynamics of the transformational process that emerges in environments where the individual feels safe and known.

AEDP Essential Skills Course will provide practical skills for the application of AEDP as well as a thorough immersion in the theory underlying the practice. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, different types of clinical interventions so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to “do” AEDP. Each day’s teaching will include didactic presentations of theory along with video of actual sessions conducted by AEDP Faculty followed by small group experiential exercises.

Week One
(Led by Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA)

Day 1: Healing from the Get-Go:  Transformance, Stance and Moment-to-Moment Tracking.
Presenter: Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA

Day 2: What Do I say, How Do I Say It and Then What Do I Do? Experiential Language and Use of Self

Presenter: Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA

Week Two
(Led by SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.)

Day 1: Reviewing and Anticipating: Special Attention to State 2 Adaptive and Maladaptive Core Affective Experience (CAE).  Presenter: SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.

Day 2: Working with Defense and Anxiety Part 2.

Day 3: The Experience of Emotional Experience:  Processing Emotions to Completion

Day 4: Working with Transformational Experience: Transformational Affects and Core State.

Day 5: Reviewing What We’ve Learned: Watching and Tracking Together.
Presenter: SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.

What we consider AEDP’s “essential skills” will be didactically demonstrated and experientially explored so that participants develop both a felt sense and a cognitive understanding of them.  A key component of the experiential practices is the opportunity to “try on” sets of interventions as a therapist and to receive them as a client. We have found that learning new skills can give rise to experiences of safety, attachment security, transformation, increased therapeutic courage, and related phenomena; precisely the kinds of experiences AEDP facilitates for its clients.  In order to help foster this crucial kind of learning our ES courses are supported by highly skilled assistants.  Each day, they aid the course faculty by leading small groups in practicing essential AEDP skills.  The concentrated time that participants spend together immersed in learning inevitably leads to the development of a culture of trust and generosity that allows for risk-taking and a supportive environment that is uniquely suited for optimal learning.

Course Objectives:
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply moment-to-moment tracking to clinical practice
  • Classify different aspects within the Triangle of Experience, including both verbal and somatic processes, to optimize attunement and accelerate the healing process

Jeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA

Jeanne NewhouseJeanne Newhouse, NCPsyA, is a licensed psychoanalyst who has been in private practice in New York City since 1988. Ms. Newhouse, a former actress and singer/dancer, began the practice of helping and healing from a body-based model. She is a trained and certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, and also has studied the Feldenkrais technique and dance therapy. She created a movement therapy program for the Smithers Institute, a residential treatment facility for substance abuse in New York City where she worked for six years. During that time she pursued a master's degree in Motor Learning at Teachers College in New York City. As she worked with more and more people with chronic pain, she began to recognize that healing the heart and soul was an integral part of healing the physical body. Hoping to put two modalities together, she began a four-year training program at the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy from which she graduated from in 1988. She practiced relational psychotherapy with adults until 2005 when she was introduced to the work of Dr. Fosha. Instantly and unreservedly drawn to the work which seemed to do exactly what she had dreamed of many years earlier, Ms. Newhouse took the Immersion course with Dr. Fosha in 2006 and then went on to do 3-plus years of Core Training with Dr. Eileen Russell and 3 years of supervision with Natasha Prenn. She has been an Assistant in the first two NYC Essential Skills courses. Ms. Newhouse has a continuing interest in the physicality of emotion and interpersonal neurobiology and continues to explore breathing and meditation and its impact on her work. Ms. Newhouse has a clinical practice in New York City and is also available for individual supervision.

AEDP Advanced Skills (ES2) Retreat-Style Course

July & November 2018

This course is for Psychotherapists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFT’s, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.

 

In AEDP, we pride ourselves in how thoroughly and deeply we seek to both (i) undo aloneness and (ii) engage in rigorous clinical teaching with skilled accompaniment. We are proud to say that our ES courses feature a high number of highly skilled assistants – and this course is no different.

AEDP Advanced Skills is for practitioners who have completed AEDP Essential Skills (ES1).  Practical in its orientation, this course focuses on helping you both (i) learn new advanced AEDP skills, and (ii) cultivate and fine-tune the AEDP skills you already have. In both left-brained and right-brained ways, we aim to teach you specific interventions and techniques that are concrete and specific that will help you with your more challenging clients. While reviewing and deepening your AEDP essential skills throughout, the Advanced Training will teach the different advanced skill sets necessary to the in-depth practice of AEDP, with theoretical foundations and clinical videotapes, as well as with group experiential exercises.

How-To, Clinical Videotapes and Experiential Learning

The AEDP Advanced Skills course aims to help you to really “work it,” AEDP style, while troubleshooting what stands in the way of your doing so. This course focuses on learning new advanced skills and reviewing, deepening and improving basic AEDP skills. You will develop more of a felt sense of how to entrain the quintessentially AEDP practice of “stay with it and stay with me” and how to keep the transformational process unfolding in all states. Experienced AEDP practitioners will closely assist with the experiential practices.

Ms. PandoMars' long-time interest in deepening connection between self and other has been grounded through AEDP's precise tracking of attachment principles and related neuroscience, and this influence is woven throughout her work with individuals, couples and groups. Licensed since 1989, her background in somatic and experiential therapies includes Focusing, Process-Oriented Psychotherapy, Sandtray, EMDR, and Authentic Movement. She was a founder of The Sandtray Network and a contributing editor of its journal. As adjunct faculty at Dominican University, in San Rafael, California, she taught AEDP as the overarching theoretical model in her Alternative and Innovative Psychotherapies course.

David Mars, M.F.T., Ph.D.

davidmars-copyDavid Mars, Ph.D. is the developer of AEDP For Couples. He has specialized in the somatically focused treatment of couples and groups for four decades, as an innovator in developing process-oriented, somatically, and empathically focused couple treatment. David has trained, supervised and consulted with Dr. Diana Fosha, the originator of AEDP since 2005.

David develops and presents training seminars and workshops nationally and internationally that focus on the AEDP for Couples model.  He is the lead supervisor of the AEDP for Couples Core Training.  He teaches at AEDP Immersion Courses, the Essential Skills Program and leads two ongoing AEDP for Couples supervision groups.  He is one of the founders of AEDP West. David is also on the adjunct faculty of the California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco where he infused AEDP into his teaching of courses on the Clinical Relationship.

David’s style as a presenter is described as inspiring, warm and deeply personable.   He quickly evokes trust from his audiences, which ushers in a deep level of transparent exchange of ideas and points of view about how therapists can more effectively treat the historical trauma and deprivation that underlies marital dysfunction.  Perhaps most importantly, participants are moved to apply what they learn in these training programs, due to the depth of experience they take in while witnessing videos, live demonstrations and engaging in experiential practices.

Karen Kranz, PhD, R. Psych.  

karen-kranz-copyDr. Kranz has been a psychologist in private practice in Vancouver Canada since 2000. Her areas of interest in AEDP are making the work with clients and therapists increasingly more relational and experiential. She is continually challenged and intrigued by core and pathogenic emotions and has completed the second draft of a paper about pathogenic affect with the working title of “Rock Logic & Rabbit Holes: The Phenomenology of Pathogenic State of Consciousness & its Impact on the Therapist’s State of Consciousness and Therapist-Client Intersubjectivity.”

After the Immersion course, she began supervision with Dr. Fosha. "At that time, all that interested me was becoming a better clinician, AEDP certification as a therapist and supervisor and becoming faculty were never my ambitions. However, as I deepened into both my knowledge and experience of AEDP and in the AEDP community, I realized that it was through the process of certification as a therapist, as a supervisor, and now with teaching and writing that I was becoming a better therapist."

With AEDP, Dr. Kranz says she "found a therapeutic home and a community of colleagues when I did not even know I was looking for one, or perhaps more aptly wasn’t looking for one because I did not believe such a home existed."

Nationally and internationally, Dr. Kranz supervises and teaches in Immersion Courses, Essentials Skills (ES1), Advanced Skills (ES2), and Core Training. Her most recent paper “Making AEDP supervision relational and experiential: Cultivating receptive affective capacity in supervisee and client” is published in the AEDP Journal Transformance.

ES1: Benjamin Lipton & Eileen Russell – New York, NY

ES1: Benjamin Lipton & Eileen Russell - New York, NY

AEDP Essential Skills (ES1) Retreat-Style Course – New York City

August & December 2018

This course is for Psychotherapists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFT’s, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.

About AEDP: Healing-oriented and attachment-based, AEDP’s practice translates current neuroscience and developmental research into moment-to-moment clinical practice. Simultaneously experiential and relational in its in-depth emotional explorations, AEDP’s interventions are deeply rooted in the dynamics of the transformational process that emerges in environments where the individual feels safe and known.

About Essential Skills (ES1): AEDP Essential Skills course will provide practical skills for the application of AEDP as well as a thorough immersion in the theory underlying the practice. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, different types of clinical interventions so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to “do” AEDP. Each day’s teaching will include didactic presentations of theory along with video of actual sessions conducted by AEDP Faculty followed by small group experiential exercises.

Daily routine: AEDP skills are introduced each morning first with their theoretical foundations and then with illustrations by way of clinical videotapes; skills are then practiced in group experiential exercises each afternoon.

Faculty, Experiential Assistants and Clinical Video: These are the hallmarks of all AEDP trainings. In AEDP, we pride ourselves in how thoroughly and deeply we seek to both undo professional aloneness and engage in rigorous clinical teaching.  Our faculty are excellent as academics, clinicians and teachers. And they have skilled accompaniment from a large number of Experiential Assistants – up to and most often including one Experiential Assistant for every three participants. Participants rave about the excellent attention and support they receive in this unique learning environment; and faculty clinical video demonstrates “AEDP in action.”

For daily agenda click here


Course Summary, Objectives and Prerequisites:

What we consider AEDP’s “essential skills” will be didactically demonstrated and experientially explored so that participants develop both a felt sense and a cognitive understanding of them.  A key component of the experiential practices is the opportunity to “try on” sets of interventions as a therapist and to receive them as a client. We have found that learning new skills can give rise to experiences of safety, attachment security, transformation, increased therapeutic courage, and related phenomena; precisely the kinds of experiences AEDP facilitates for its clients. In order to help foster this crucial kind of learning our ES courses are supported by highly skilled assistants.  Each day, they aid the course faculty by leading small groups in practicing essential AEDP skills.  The concentrated time that participants spend together immersed in learning inevitably leads to the development of a culture of trust and generosity that allows for risk-taking and a supportive environment that is uniquely suited for optimal learning.

Course Objectives:
At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Apply moment-to-moment tracking to clinical practice
  • Classify different aspects within the Triangle of Experience, including both verbal and somatic processes, to optimize attunement and accelerate the healing process
  • Define attachment styles and utilize different interventions according to attachment style
  • Utilize various ways to regulate anxiety, bypass defenses and other inhibitory forces which block progress in therapy
  • Identify and access core affective experiences
  • Identify expressions of transformance in clients
  • Practice utilizing transformance strivings as a catalyst to maximize patient’s healing
  • Integrate healing and transformance from the get-go
  • Demonstrate an AEDP therapist stance: welcome, affirm, validate, orient

Prerequisites:
We highly recommend that you complete Immersion before taking Essential Skills (ES1). If you are committed to learning AEDP and have not yet taken Immersion, please complete the recorded webinar Intro to AEDP prior to starting ES1.  Note, however, that Intro to AEDP is by no means a substitute for Immersion and Immersion is a requirement for AEDP certification.  You will earn 6 CE for taking this course.  Once you have completed the course you will eligible for a $100 credit towards a future Immersion course.
