AEDP Essential Skills (ES1) Course – Three Long Weekends, Boston

March, May & October 2019

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. In addition, live clinical demonstrations will be held each weekend.

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.”

Weekend One: AEDP 101: Nuts & Bolts of AEDP
Thursday, March  21 – Sunday, March 24, 2019
Presented by Lead faculty, SueAnne Piliero, PhD

Weekend 2: Attachment, Portrayals, Defense Work
Friday, May 31 – Sunday, June 2, 2019
Presented by guest faculty Jenn Edlin, MA, JD and lead faculty SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.

Weekend 3: Emotion to Completion & Transformational Experience
Friday, October 18 – Sunday, October 20, 2019
Presented by lead faculty SueAnne Piliero, PhD


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.

SEMINAR: SueAnne Piliero - San Francisco, CA

Transform Trauma through “Fierce Love:” Using the AEDP Therapist’s Bold, Embodied Presence

LIVE DEMOS and more help you learn how to bring your SELF more fully into the therapy dyad

 

an AEDP 2-Day Seminar

at San Francisco Theological Seminary, San Anselmo, CA

with SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.

 

 

This seminar is for professionals in mental health and the healing arts and sciences including: Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists as well as soon-to-be licensed Interns & Trainees.

Being an AEDP therapist requires not just learning the theory or the techniques, but also building the internal capacity within our SELFs to “be with” and “stay with,” deep emotional pain, shame, anger, grief, unbearable aloneness…

Being an AEDP therapist requires a strong therapeutic presence; leading boldly, co-regulating, psychobiologically attuning to our patients, our Self, the relationship and the “space between us.”

Being an AEDP therapist requires advocating and championing our patients’ capacity to heal and be whole when they see and feel nothing but darkness and emptiness. It requires accompanying our patients on emotional journeys that we ourselves may never have been on (and perhaps avoiding because we, too, are afraid to touch that guarded space within us). Being an AEDP requires that we tend to not just our patients’ affective and relational wounds, but also our own.

In short, being an AEDP therapist requires the courage to practice from the “inside out.”

Not an easy task.

In this workshop, we will explore in-depth how to bring our SELFs more fully into the therapeutic relationship—and what stands in the way— in order to enhance, deepen and accelerate the healing process.

Through lecture, videotape, and live demos you will see, hear, and witness how the most powerful tool in our clinical toolkit is our own strong, embodied presence.

Main Points:

  • Practice your ability to more present, engaged, and psychobiologically attuned to your patients
  • Recognize your own “affect phobias” that get in the way of your patient’s healing journey
  • Enhance your ability to Use your Self as a Healing Mechanism (e.g. through self disclosure of feelings and patient’s impact on you, etc.)
  • Accelerate, enhance and complete the healing process by “leading” more and advocating more fiercely on behalf of your patients
  • Sharpen your moment-to-moment tracking skills focusing on words, affect, resonance, and the body
  • Transform shame, pathogenic affects, core erroneous beliefs about the self and other

 

Course Objectives:

  • Identify the ways in which your own “affect phobias” can get in the way of doing deep, emotional work
  • Formulate and utilize portrayals in transforming trauma
  • Access and utilize your own healing journey to benefit your patients’ healing journeys
  • Integrate the power of your whole Self, viscerally impacted by your patients’ histories and core affective experiences, to guide your interventions
  • Construct explicit and experiential work with the experience of attachment and intersubjective delight

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.

AEDP Advanced Skills is for licensed practitioners who have completed both Immersion and 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, 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.

SEMINAR: AEDP: Undoing Aloneness

a European Workshop in Sitges (Barcelona) Spain with Diana Fosha, PhD

October 5 2019

ES1: SueAnne Piliero - Boston, MA

AEDP Essential Skills (ES1) Course – Three Long Weekends, Boston

March, May & October 2019

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. In addition, live clinical demonstrations will be held each weekend.

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.”

Weekend One: AEDP 101: Nuts & Bolts of AEDP
Thursday, March  21 – Sunday, March 24, 2019
Presented by Lead faculty, SueAnne Piliero, PhD

Weekend 2: Attachment, Portrayals, Defense Work
Friday, May 31 – Sunday, June 2, 2019
Presented by guest faculty Jenn Edlin, MA, JD and lead faculty SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D.

Weekend 3: Emotion to Completion & Transformational Experience
Friday, October 18 – Sunday, October 20, 2019
Presented by lead faculty SueAnne Piliero, PhD


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.
