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.

In 2004, Jerry, along with Dr. Kari Gleiser developed a modified version of AEDP for the treatment of dissociative disorders. Since then, Jerry has authored three articles on AEDP and its application in treating complex trauma and in 2015 released a three DVD training video of his teaching and live clinical work.
