Preliminary Presentations

Pre-Conference Workshop #1 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm)
AEDP: A model of systematic interventions that harness the core biological self to deepen and stabilize change.  
SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D and Karen Pando-Mars, MFT

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is a rich creative relevant system of interventions. Attachment based and healing oriented, it helps you connect with your clients and use the power of emotion to create change.
AEDP features specific intervention strategies for working explicitly, dyadically, and experientially with intense unresolved traumatic emotions in a that way transforms suffering and fosters clients’ feeling deeply recognized and understood, safe and secure, and as a result, curious and increasingly capable in relation to Self and Others. Unique in its intimate, moment-to-moment relational work, AEDP also reflects the seamless integration of psychodynamic principles with experiential techniques of trauma-based & body-oriented therapies, and the wisdom of the humanistic and mindfulness traditions.
This workshop will introduce clinicians to a therapy that makes use of experiential techniques and focuses on moment-to- moment dyadic affective processes to help clients access and regulate intense emotions. AEDP features an explicitly empathic, affirming, emotionally engaged therapeutic stance, active relational techniques and experiential interventions to make the most of transformational processes. Teaching will make extensive use of videotaped material from actual psychotherapy sessions to illustrate both affective phenomena and clinical techniques.

Pre-Conference Workshop #2 (2:00 pm - 5:00 pm)
Interpersonal Reconstructive Therapy (IRT) helps decide what to do for whom, when and how.
Lorna Smith Benjamin, Ph.D. ABPP

The Interpersonal Reconstructive Therapy (IRT) case formulation and treatment models can be used continually to guide choices of  interventions from any available approach.  The guidelines are based on an attachment- based natural biological model of psychopathology enriched by primatology, developmental psychology, neuroanatomy and chemistry, and clinical and research findings at the IRT clinic that specialized in treating CORDS, patients who were Comorbid, often Rehospitalized, Dysfunctional and Suicidal.
