This 4-Day Immersion Course in AEDP is intended for practitioners interested in AEDP, in its transformational theory, and in exploring its applications to the treatment of attachment trauma. Our focus is on AEDP and the theory and practice informing AEDP work at the edge of healing experience to repair attachment trauma. Making extensive use of clinical videotapes of actual therapy sessions, the aim of this course is to foster proficiency in the practice of AEDP, as well as facilitate its integration into clinical practices that make use of other experiential, body-focused, trauma-based, relational and/or psychodynamic methods.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
- Define Transformance and apply it to psychotherapy
- Explain the self-other-emotion triangle and identify the 4 States and 3 State Transformations of AEDP.
- Explain the key clinical concepts, theoretical contributions, and the credo of AEDP.
- Discuss the role of healthy attachment and attachment trauma in health and psychopathology, as well as identify the right brain processes engaged in the process of attachment.
- Identify the 3 elements of dyadic affect regulation: attunement, disruption, and repair and to define dyadic affect regulation in clinical work.
