SEMINAR: Danny Yeung – LIVE ONLINE from Toronto, CA May, 2020

Awakening the Healing Power Within:
 Insula, Neuroception, Dyadic Contemplative Presence and Zhuangzi in AEDP

An AEDP Institute Sponsored, Online (live) Seminar with AEDP Senior Faculty Member Danny Yeung, MD

SOLD OUT 

Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Psychiatrists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFTs, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, in mental health and the healing arts and sciences. This course is for Beginning/Intermediate levels.


Focusing on dyadic contemplative presence, this workshop aims to approach AEDP through the transtheorectical lens of therapeutic presence as a common factor of therapeutic effectiveness, promoting positive therapeutic alliance which is known to be the most robust predictor of treatment success. This workshop is not about the AEDP therapist’s ‘doing’ in treatment, rather, it is about AEDP therapist’s ‘being’ in treatment, or the AEDP therapist’s inner life, care of self and the use of self. As such, this way of working with AEDP is from the inside out, emanating from the AEDP therapist’s way of ‘being’ into her/his therapeutic act of ‘doing’. This workshop further explores the neurobiological underpinnings of dyadic contemplative presence, including the insula, middle prefrontal cortex and the smart vagus. Finally, situating ourselves in the Chinese cultural context, Zhuangzi, arguably the first existentialist psychotherapist living in the trauma ridden era of the Warring States, becomes an inspirational wise elder for contemporary AEDP therapists in the art and the practice of contemplative presence.

At the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Practice therapeutic presence as a common factor in psychotherapy and contributor to positive therapeutic alliance.
  • Practice dyadic contemplative presence as, informed by equal parts attachment, intersubjectivity and mindfulness, a specialized form of therapeutic presence.
  • Understand the significance of the insula cortex, specifically Von Economo neurons, in its practice of self-consciousness, empathy and intuition.
  • Practice dyadic contemplative presence in promoting neuroception of safety in AEDP.
  • Integrate the contemporary relevance of Zhuangzi in the clinical application of contemplative presence.
  • Integrate the experiential cultivation of contemplative presence, inner life, care of self as a way of being.
