Ron Frederick Master Class

AEDP Master Class with Ron Frederick, PhD

The work of AEDP requires that we, as clinicians, have a deep understanding of how our own early attachment experiences may play a role in our work with clients.  In this AEDP Master Class with Dr. Ron Frederick, we will explore how we can more reliably identify and make use of our own felt experience to affect growth, healing, and change with our clients.  Through lecture, videotape clinical material, and individual supervision in a group context, you will have the opportunity and space to sensitize yourself to and learn how to make optimal use of your feelings while increasing your capacity for emotional presence and relational work.  We will pay special attention to identifying out attachment related experience, increasing our ability to manage emotional reactions and triggers, navigate and make sense of challenging moments in treatment, and maintain an open, grounded presence.  In addition, we will explore ways in which we can bring our authentic selves more fully into the therapeutic encounter that can enliven, deepen, and accelerate the process.  You will leave this master class with an expanded repertoire of tools to transform both your life and clinical work. 

Four participants will have the opportunity for consultation of their video work with clients in which they are struggling, stuck, or feeling challenged in some way.
