4-Day Immersion Retreat

The Dyadic Repair of Attachment Trauma:
 Healing at the Edge of Transformational Experience

with Diana Fosha, PhD, developer of AEDP and guest members of the AEDP Institute faculty

London 20-23 February 2020

AEDP [Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy] Immersion is the recommended first course for therapists who are seeking to become AEDP Certified. The AEDP Immersion course is intended for clinicians interested in this healing-oriented, transformation-based therapeutic model – both its theory and phenomenology – and in exploring AEDP’s unique contributions to the treatment of attachment trauma.

In the Immersion course we also seek to undo clinicians’ aloneness by working to foster a vibrant community of like-minded, like-hearted others. It is the vision of the course to bring together clinicians from different perspectives who share an interest in AEDP specifically and/or in dynamic-experiential work in general, and who also each bring their own very special expertise, interest and experiences. In this way, Immersion is not only exciting and enlivening for its participants, but AEDP itself continues to be enriched and enhanced by being in communication with many deep sources of knowledge and wisdom.

AEDP Immersion: Theoretical Framework, Clinical Teaching from Videotapes, Experiential Exercises
The AEDP Immersion course will teach you how to work at the edge of transformational experience and how to use somatic-affective transformational markers to guide interventions. You will learn how to use AEDP’s rigorous transformational phenomenology to closely track clinical processes. Extensive use of clinical videotapes will demonstrate hallmark AEDP techniques such as:

  • Dyadic affect regulation;
  • Experiential work with attachment experience;
  • Working with receptive affective experience, such as feeling felt, feeling seen, and feeling cared for;
  • Processing emotion through to a transformational shift; and the metaprocessing of transformational experience.

PhD


Diana Fosha, PhD, is the developer of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), a healing-based, transformation-oriented model of psychotherapeutic treatment; she is Founder and Director of the AEDP Institute. Based in New York City, where she lives and practices, she has been on the faculties of the Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology of NYU and St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Medical Centers (now Mount Sinai) in NYC, and of the doctoral programs in clinical psychology at the Derner Institute for Advanced Psychological Studies and The City University of New York. Diana Fosha is the author of The Transforming Power of Affect: A Model for Accelerated Change (Basic Books, 2000), and of numerous articles on an attachment-emotion-transformation focused experiential treatment model. She is senior editor, with Daniel Siegel and Marion Solomon, of The Healing Power of Emotion: Affective Neuroscience, Development & Clinical Practice (Norton, 2009), part of Norton’s Interpersonal Neurobiology series, and co-author, with Natasha Prenn, of Essentials of AEDP Supervision (APA, 2016). APA has issued 3 DVDs of her APA work.

She has contributed chapters to, among others, Clinical Pearls of Wisdom: 21 Leading Therapists Offer Their Key Insights, edited by M. Kerman (Norton, 2009); Complex Traumatic Stress Disorders: An Evidence-Based Clinician’s Guide, edited by C. Courtois & J. D. Ford (Guilford, 2009);   Healing Trauma: Attachment, Mind, Body and Brain, edited by Marion Solomon and Daniel Siegel (Norton, 2003); and to The Comprehensive Handbook of Psychotherapy, Volume 1: Psychodynamic and Object Relations Therapies, edited by J. J. Magnavita (Wiley, 2002). For the last 20 years, she has been active in promoting a scientific basis for a healing oriented attachment, emotion and transformation focused therapy.

Known for her powerful, precise yet simultaneously poetic and evocative affective writing style, Diana’s phrases — “undoing aloneness,” “existing in the heart and mind of the other,” “True Other,” “make the implicit explicit and the explicit experiential,” “stay with it and stay with me,” “rigor without shame” and “judicious self-disclosure” — capture the ethos of AEDP.


Outline

About AEDP – Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy
AEDP seeks to undo the patient’s aloneness in the face of overwhelming suffering and to engage innate healing forces within, i.e., transformance, so as to heal trauma, restore vitality to self experience, and engender resilience.
AEDP engages the process of deep emotional change and features a theoretical framework for transformational work.
Healing-oriented and attachment-based, AEDP’s practice translates current neuroscience and developmental research into moment-to-moment clinical practice. Simultaneously experiential and relational in its in-depth emotional explorations, AEDP’s interventions are deeply rooted in the dynamics of the transformational process that emerges in environments where the individual feels safe and known.

AEDP Immersion: Theoretical Framework, Clinical Teaching from Videotapes, Experiential Exercises

AEDP [Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy] Immersion is the recommended first course for licensed therapists who are seeking to become AEDP Certified.
The AEDP Immersion course will teach you how to work at the edge of transformational experience and how to use somatic-affective transformational markers to guide interventions. You will learn how to use AEDP’s rigorous transformational phenomenology to closely track clinical processes. Extensive use of clinical videotapes will demonstrate hallmark AEDP techniques such as:
  • Dyadic affect regulation;
  • Experiential work with attachment experience;
  • Working with receptive affective experience, such as feeling felt, feeling seen, and feeling cared for;
  • Processing emotion through to a transformational shift; and
  • The metaprocessing of transformational experience.
Experiential exercises will allow you to both practice AEDP interventions and experience how brain, body, psyche and the experience of human connection and transformation intertwine to unleash deep emotional change and heal attachment trauma.
What an Average Day Looks Like
  • Each day begins with a 90-minute theoretical presentation grounding the clinical work in the conceptual framework of AEDP’s healing oriented transformational theory.
  • The remainder of the day consists of clinical teaching revolving around clinical videotapes, with a focus on the phenomenology of transformation as well as techniques and strategies of intervention. Special attention will be accorded to working with the experience of transformation, the healing affects, offering and receiving affirmation, and promoting core state experiencing, all in the context of transforming attachment trauma. In essence, this Immersion course is a soup-to-nuts course in AEDP.
  • The format is highly interactive and emphasizes back-and-forth with participants, thus activating dyadic processes of communication.
  • There is also opportunity to practice aspects of AEDP through structured experiential exercises.
Videotapes Will Help You Learn and Practice How To:
  • Entrain neuroplasticity and harness healing forces from the get-go
  • Be a transformance detective
  • Work experientially with the experience of attachment in the here-and-now therapeutic relationship
  • Use affective/somatic affective markers to moment-to-moment track Clinical process and guide interventions
  • Recognize the phenomenology of the transformational process: the 4 states and 3 state transformations of AEDP
  • Use dyadic regulation to undo the patient’s aloneness in the face of overwhelming emotional experience
  • Use dyadic affect regulation to transform shame and fear; restore connection, flow and awe
  • Regulate and process emotion to a transformational shift, from negative to a point where positive affects and adaptive action tendencies are released
  • Use healing affects to foster True Self experience through being a True Other
  • Metaprocess transformational experiences to engender upward spirals of resilience, health, creativity, & well-being, i.e., flourishing
  • Promote core state and experiences of openness, compassion, self-compassion, flow, ease, wisdom, generosity, and calm
