SEMINAR: David Mars - Vancouver, BC

AEDP for Couples: Transforming Relationships through Healing Relational Deprivation and Trauma

an AEDP Vancouver Seminar
with David Mars, PhD

 

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

The movement from fear to love and from survival to thriving, is the expression of transformance: the indwelling biological drive to evolve. (Fosha 2008, Mars 2011).

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a somatically-based model of psychotherapy with roots in attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, emotion theory and transformational studies.  David Mars, Ph.D. has expanded upon Dr. Diana Fosha’s model to develop AEDP for Couples, which treats the relational trauma and deprivation that often underlies dysfunctional patterns in couple’s lives. By creating a safe container within which even highly dysregulated couples can learn to thrive together, AEDPfC helps to create nutritive experiences of somatically-based responsiveness between partners that begin in the first session.

David will illustrate how to work with couples to build bridges of relational safety and intimacy that generate increased earned secure attachment. Clinical videotapes of treatment sessions over time will demonstrate the transformative processes central to AEDPfC. David will help you to quickly identify and more effectively treat deactivating (avoidant) and hyper-activating (anxious/ambivalent) attachment patterns.  He will highlight the therapist’s use of self in working with chronically traumatized and reactive couples. This workshop will feature unique methods of detecting and amplifying the greatest strengths of each couple member through cultivating moment-to-moment whole body awareness within each couple member and the therapist as well.  In these ways the therapist’s own somatic awareness and joy in the work grows and thrives right along with the couple.

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Name the four states of AEDP
  • Identify three ways to begin to establish a secure base in the first session of treatment
  • Describe two ways to regulate emotional reactivity in each couple member when either is triggered
  • Name the Seven Channels of Experience (Sensation, Emotion, Energetic, Movement, Auditory, Visual and Imaginal)
  • Use the earliest signs of hyper-reactivity and dorsal vagal response to discover the access points to treat underlying trauma.
  • Cultivate and expand upon your own inner gifts as a therapist.
  • Facilitate healing portrayals that can bring lasting relief of buried traumatic wounding.
  • Bring more peace, justice and respectful recognition into couples daily lives.

Meet the Presenter

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.
