Undoing Aloneness: The Transformation of Emotional Suffering

an AEDP Rocky Mountains Workshop – at Building Healthy Relationships, LLC

with Diana Fosha, PhD

Aloneness in the face of overwhelming emotion is the epicenter of emotional suffering; attempts to deal with it result in the psychopathology that brings our clients to seek help.

Attachment is key to undoing that aloneness so that previously feared-to-be overwhelming emotions can be processed and thus trauma transformed.  AEDP, one of the fastest growing approaches to working with attachment trauma, has developed rich creative systematic interventions for doing precisely that: undoing the client’s aloneness by entraining experiences of secure attachment which allow trauma processing, and then rigorously processing those experiences. AEDP is fearless in working with the experience of the client therapist attachment directly, explicitly, and experientially, moment-to-moment tracking it and processing it as rigorously as any other experience.  Its intimate, moment-to-moment work follows the edge of transformational experience.

AEDP features specific intervention strategies for working explicitly, dyadically, and experientially with intense unresolved traumatic emotions in a that way transforms suffering and fosters clients’ feeling safe, as well as deeply recognized and understood.

Through extensive audio-visually recorded actual therapy sessions, this workshop will provide ample exposure to AEDP’s hallmark techniques of dyadic affect regulation (to undo aloneness and process traumatic experience), healing-oriented emotion processing, and metatherapeutic processing (to process transformational experience) which can consolidate therapeutic gains, foster resilience, expand relational capacity, and also deepen receptive affective experiences of feeling seen, felt, loved and understood.

What You’ll Learn

In this workshop, you will learn to:

  • Recognize transformance and put it into clinical action;
  • Effectively and safely undo aloneness by working experientially with relational experience;
  • Facilitate the dyadic affect regulation of previously feared to be unbearable emotions;
  • Work with intense emotional experiences, so as to transform suffering into resilience;
  • Recognize and entrain receptive aspects of the attachment experience; and Use the client’s experience of transformation to activate further healing and consolidation of gains already made.
