Healing Attachment Wounds: Making Friends With Defenses and Anxiety
Dale Trimble, M.A. RCC #1291
Senior Faculty, AEDP Institute
* Zoom link to be sent upon registration*
Dale is a seasoned Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) practitioner and senior faculty at the AEDP Institute.
AEDP seeks to undo the patient’s aloneness in the face of overwhelming suffering and engage innate healing forces to recover from trauma, restore vitality, and engender resilience. Dale will present the essence of the AEDP theoretical model of healing and change. He will show a video of a therapy session that demonstrates how to;
· engage neuroplasticity and harness healing from the beginning of therapy.
· work experientially with attachment in the here-and-now of the therapy relationship
· use affective/somatic markers to track and guide interventions
