The Process of Change in AEDP: The Spirit of AEDP in Clinical Practice – Diana Fosha

The Process of Change in AEDP: The Spirit of AEDP in Clinical Practice – Diana Fosha

From: USD $748.00

Have you discovered the transformative powers of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP)? This workshop explores how it leverages positive and negative emotions for psychological growth to alleviate suffering and promote flourishing.

Categories: , ,


Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is an integrative transformational therapy model. AEDP uses relational work, experiential techniques, and a focus on change and healing in order to alleviate emotional suffering and promote resilience and flourishing.

Drawing upon research in neuroplasticity, affective neuroscience, developmental research into caregiver infant interaction, Darwinian emotion theory, and transformational studies, this psychotherapy approach navigates the complex interactions between positive and negative emotions towards psychological growth and adaptation.

In the last few years, AEDP has grown exponentially. Why? What chord does it strike in people? What is it that is resonating with therapists worldwide?

Diana Fosha, the founder of AEDP, believes the answer lies not just in its theory and specific modes of intervention, but fundamentally within AEDP’s ethos and values — or its spirit.

It is about the quest that animates each session (i) to bring forth the healing within each person; (ii) undo aloneness; (iii) transform emotional suffering; and (iv) sow the seeds of flourishing.

This workshop will explore how AEDP uses interventions and practices like transformance detection, dyadic affect regulation, experiential work with relational experience, and processing emotions to a corrective emotional and/or relational experience.

In addition, you will learn how to use AEDP’s metatherapeutic processing — a systematic methodology to help clients flourish during and after sessions.

We will even track change over time using videotaped recordings of AEDP therapy sessions with a 19 year old client who experienced significant big T and relational trauma. Through witnessing the complete 6-session therapy, participants will be able to grasp both the spirit of AEDP, its methods, and how it can promote change, while deepening their learning of the AEDP model.
