Vancouver Workshop • Benjamin Lipton, LCSW

Catalyzing Secure Attachment: Specific Strategies to Foster Resilience, Cultivate Empathy and Expand Relational Capacities through Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)

With Benjamin Lipton, LCSW

AEDP, with its dual clinical focus on a) directly translating attachment research into the clinical practice of fostering secure attachment and b) naming, tracking and experientially amplifying the specific, moment-to-moment markers of positive transformation, offers the possibility of identifying and naming specific intervention strategies that foster a client feeling deeply recognized and understood, safe and secure, and as a result, curious and increasingly capable in relation to Self and others.  This workshop will provide you with a starter kit of these techniques as well as the opportunity for us to collaboratively build upon them as we watch clinical video over the course of the morning.

 You will learn:

1) The main theoretical foundations for AEDP: an attachment-based, emotion focused, experiential, body-centered, and transformation-based model
2) The role of right brain to right-brain communication in engendering secure attachment and repairing attachment trauma
3) How experiential meta-processing can foster resilience and expand relational capacity.
4) The power of moment-to-moment tracking of the patient and therapist on videotape as a tool for catalyzing and facilitating positive psychological change.
