Advanced Skills Weekend: Using AEDP’s Representational Schemas to Scaffold the Therapist’s Presence, Persistence and Precision

The experiential focus in AEDP aims to harness positive neuroplasticity. In this advanced skills weekend training, we will explore that how we specifically engage positive neuroplasticity with each client we treat is tripled in its impact when we make use of AEDP’s three representational schemas to guide our interventions and clinical decision making: The Triangle of Experience, the Self-Other-Emotion triangle and the Triangle of Relational Comparisons. With the four-state transformational process map in the background, this weekend will illustrate the use of these three representational schemas using clinical examples to show how they provide underlying structure for moment-to-moment clinical activities, and fortify the AEDP clinician’s metaskills of presence, persistence and precision. Therapists’ affective competence plays a huge part in generating the effectiveness of our treatment: 1) how we perceive and respond to the client’s presenting issues, 2) how we identify transformance motivational forces at play, and 3) how we search to discover the roots of a patient’s suffering and the dynamics that underlie their functioning. I believe how AEDP therapists lean into AEDP therapeutic stance and put the three representational schemas to use with presence, precision and persistence helps us to meet our clients and helps them to feel met. In this way we can maximize the effectiveness ofAEDP’s experiential focus to potentiate positive neuroplasticity and help our clients to have the specific healing and transformation to address what has brought them to seek psychotherapy. We will have both didactic teaching with video illustration and experiential exercises.
