Intro to AEDP

How to Be a Transformational Therapist and Put Neuroplasticity into Everyday Action

an AEDP TriState Seminar
at Mt. Sinai West in NYC
with Diana Fosha, Ph.D.


Through extensive audio-visually recorded actual therapy sessions,  this workshop will provide ample exposure to AEDP’s hallmark techniques of dyadic affect regulation (to undo aloneness and process traumatic experience), healing-oriented emotion processing, and  metatherapeutic processing (to process transformational experience) which can consolidate therapeutic gains, foster resilience, expand relational capacity, and also deepen receptive affective experiences of feeling seen, felt, loved and understood.

In this training, we will explore 5 aspects of how to be a transformational therapist:

  1. be a transformance detective how to set positive neuroplasticity into action by entraining transformance, the innate drive to heal, moment-to-moment, session to session
  2. stay with it and stay with me:  how to use dyadic affect regulation and work experientially with the therapeutic relationship, to co-create safety and connection, so as to do the work of deep emotional processing
  3. existing in the heart and mind of the other: how to work experientially with receptive affective experience, and use the client’s sense of feeling felt and being seen, to deepen our clients’ resilience and sense of self
  4. how to work with Intense Emotion: how to experientially work with and process intense emotional experience in order to transform suffering into flourishing
  5. work with transformational experience is transformational. how to use AEDP’s groundbreaking metatherapeutic processing methodology to make the most out of each change-for-the-better moment to activate non-finite positive spirals of energy and vitality to upgrade the system and fuel engaged explorations

Objectives:

At the end of this program, Participants will be able to:

  • Identify transformance manifestations in clients
  • List 2 techniques to set transformance, i.e., positive transformance, into action
  • Describe how to foster a therapeutic stance conducive to dyadic affect regulation
  • Demonstrate 3 interventions to work with intense emotion
  • Utilize the patient’s experience of transformation to activate further healing and consolidation of gains already made
