In this one day workshop we will introduce Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), a transformative, non pathological model of change developed by Dr Diana Fosha in New York. Drawing on the art and science of psychotherapy, Angela Massucco and Dr Heather Gretton will introduce AEDP as a healing oriented, experiential, attachment based psychotherapy that translates affective neuroscience and developmental research, into the musicality of AEDP language as an unfolding, moment to moment, therapeutic dance. AEDP is an approach that seeks glimmers of potential healing from the moment of meeting. Engaging the client through a collaborative process, the therapist privileges the healing potential of the relationship to undo aloneness, regulate anxiety, and provide the safety necessary to process previously avoided affective experience.

The body is a vessel for emotional experience. Within the body, felt experience is sensed, encoded in the brain and re-experienced within the brain and body. Through the exquisite attunement between therapist and client, the therapist accompanies the client to access their affective experience, and to regulate and deepen waves of emotion to completion. Out of these completed waves of emotion, relief and hope can emerge, and new adaptive action can come alive. Through meta processing, the therapist engages the person in a self-reflective process, bringing implicit experience into mindful awareness that supports the deepening of the transformational experience. AEDP detects glimmers of hope, undoing fear and shame so that joy and a compassionate and coherent sense of self can emerge.

In this introductory workshop Angela Massucco and Dr Heather Gretton will explore how creative and scientific elements of AEDP meet to access hidden resources, and release resilience and positive growth at the very core of self.
