Molly Eldridge — AEDP: Attachment in Action

AEDP: Attachment in Action, a 2019 Cape Cod Institute workshop led by Molly Eldridge June 24-28, 2019

Molly Eldridge

AEDP: Attachment in Action
June 24-28, 2019

Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, AEDP, developed by Diana Fosha, is one of the leading new therapies worldwide. Championing our innate healing capacities, AEDP is an integrative model that draws on attachment theory, affective neuroscience, interpersonal neurobiology, body-focused approaches, short-term dynamic psychotherapies, and transformational studies. AEDP, importantly, shows us how to use theory to affect clinical change. It explicates how to engender secure attachment in our different therapeutic dyads with specific intervention strategies for expanding self-self attachment and self-other relational capacities. From this dyadically supported relationship, engendering feelings of safety and accompaniment, AEDP heals trauma and helps to undo aloneness. It is attachment in action.

Through moment-to-moment, in-depth processing of sometimes difficult emotional and relational experiences, AEDP helps clients recover their sense of core self and experience increased resilience and a renewed zest for life.  

AEDP is in many ways a natural, instinctual way of working. Often practitioners say it feels like a therapeutic “home” and energizes and enlivens their work. However, it is not as easy as it can look! It is rather a rigorous treatment modality with very specific skills, interventions, sequences of interventions, and maps that translate AEDP theory into how to work with AEDP clinically.  

Appropriate for both those new to AEDP and those with experience, this workshop will be an exploration into AEDP change mechanisms. Using a balance of “left brain” and “right brain” approaches we will explore the theoretical constructs of the model and their translation into specific technique and interventions. We will watch videotapes of AEDP therapy sessions as we track the processes that allow the work to flow. We will also practice with each other the process and language of actual interventions, and truly experience AEDP in action. You will go home with both a deeper intellectual understanding and a felt sense of how to practice AEDP.


Moment-to-moment tracking, the AEDP Protocol, entry points, experiential language, anxiety regulation, working with defenses 


Undoing aloneness and fostering safety and facilitating secure attachment from the start


Dyadic affect regulation and change processes: receiving, receptivity, or, more simply put, "Can you take it in?"



Attachment styles, therapist use of self, self disclosure and its use, responsiveness to need and being a “true other”


Privileging the emergence of the positive and new, acknowledging mastery and success, metatherapeutic processing: usually an endpoint, a starting point in AEDP. Taking it all home.
