Gil Tunnell, PhD in conversation with Carrie
This is a recording of a live event that occurred on Tuesday June 21, 2022
Jerry will be discussing his chapter in the recently released book, “Undoing Aloneness and the Transformation of Suffering: AEDP 2.0”. Called “Finding Healing in the Broken Places – Intra-relational AEDP work with Traumatic aloneness”, the chapter explores AEDP-informed parts work as a means of helping our clients transform overwhelming states of aloneness, dread, despair and shame into opportunities for growth and healing. Mr. Lamagna will discuss the topic of pathogenic affects in the context of AEDP metapsychology and examine the general usefulness of parts work in AEDP.
This Transformance Talk will be recorded and will be available for FREE for Members!
