AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) is an integrative transformational therapy model that 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, AEDP 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 AEDP strike in people? And what is it that resonates with therapists worldwide?

Diana Fosha, the founder of AEDP, believes the answer lies not only in AEDP’s theory and specific modes of intervention, but also fundamentally within AEDP’s ethos and value. It is about the quest that animates each session to (i) bring forth 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, participants 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 a complete 6-session therapy, participants will be able to grasp both the spirit of AEDP, its methods, and how AEDP promotes change while also deepening their learning of the AEDP model.

At the conclusion of this workshop, attendees will be better able to —

  • Define transformance and how it relates to positive neuroplasticity
  • Demonstrate an AEDP therapist stance: welcome, affirm, validate, orient
  • Apply moment-to-moment tracking to clinical practice
  • Describe how to build and rebuild a secure attachment
  • Discuss ways to integrate healing and transformance from the get-go
  • Classify different aspects within the Triangle of Experience, including both verbal and somatic processes, to optimize attunement and accelerate the healing process
  • Relate the experience of emotional experience: processing emotions to completion
  • Analyze the 4 State Transformational Process: Working with relational trauma in a first session
  • Discuss how to integrate Meta-therapeutic processing and transformational processes

Diana Fosha, PhD, is the developer of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy), a healing-oriented, transformational, experiential model of therapy, and Founder and Director of the AEDP Institute.

For the last 20 years, Diana has been active in promoting a scientific basis for a healing-oriented, attachment-emotion, and transformation-focused trauma treatment model. Her work focuses on integrating neuroplasticity, recognition science, and developmental dyadic research into experiential and transformational clinical work with patients. Diana’s most recent work focuses on flourishing as a seamless part of the process of transforming emotional suffering.

Diana is the author of The Transforming Power of Affect: A Model for Accelerated Change (Basic Books, 2000); co-author with Natasha Prenn of Supervision Essentials for Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (APA, 2016); 1st editor with Daniel Siegel and Marion Solomon of The Healing Power of Emotion: Affective Neuroscience, Development & Clinical Practice (Norton, 2009), and editor of Undoing Aloneness and the Transformation of Suffering into Flourishing: AEDP 2.0 (APA, 2021). Four DVDs of her live AEDP clinical work, including one documenting a complete 6-session treatment and one on clinical supervision, have been issued by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Described by psychoanalyst James Grotstein as a “prizefighter of intimacy” and by David Malan as “the Winnicott of [accelerated experiential] psychotherapy”, Diana Fosha’s writing style is powerful and precise, yet poetic and evocative. Her phrases “undoing aloneness”, “existing in the heart and mind of the other”, “stay with it and stay with me”, “rigor without shame”, and “True Other” effectively capture the ethos of AEDP. Many of Diana’s papers are available through the AEDP website at www.aedpinstitute.org.
