AEDP Institute

Speaking to the Hearts of Men: Applying AEDP with Gender in Mind

an AEDP New England Seminar
at the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum
Lexington, MA

with Dale Trimble, MA

Through video examples of Dale’s therapy with men, we will explore how gender can influence healing and the processing of emotion. Using stories, pictures, research and conversation we will examine:

  • Gender differences as revealed by neuroscience
  • Attending to language as a way to deepen emotion
  • The risks of being male
  • Risk of violence assessment & and tools that enhance peace and respect
  • What is wrong with “anger management” and how to make it right
  • Common therapist pitfalls that can shame men damage the therapy alliance

Dale will describe and demonstrate “compassionate confrontation” as a means to uncover the man’s “self-at-best” and how to put shame to work for healing and responsibility.

An overview of AEDP theory will be provided making this workshop of use to both those who are new to AEDP and those who are experienced in the theory and practice.
