A therapeutic consensus is emerging that moment-to-moment experiential work is the treatment of choice for a range of issues involving trauma and attachment disorders. But the practical question remains of how best to navigate the emotional challenges of this kind of highly charged clinical work. This course will examine what recent advances in neuroscience, attachment theory, and trauma studies can tell us about what brings about transformation in experiential therapy. On the nuts-and-bolts clinical level, you'll learn how close attention to dyadic affect regulation, emotional resonance, mirroring, gaze-to-gaze communication, and affirming recognition is central to experiential work. You'll come away from this course with a deeper appreciation of what it means to be "present" in therapy, what healing looks and feels like, and how to turn feeling lost in the immediacy of your interactions with certain clients into opportunities for transformation.
Diana Fosha, Ph.D., is the developer of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy and the director of the AEDP Institute. She's the author of The Transforming Power of Affect: A Model for Accelerated Change. She teaches and is in private practice in New York City.
