"What did I get? More ability to track my body and my client's body. And love admiration and joy...oh and transformation!"

"Another brilliant fountain of AEDP wisdom in how David not only teaches, but demonstrates the AEDP worldview by who he is!"

"I feel re-invigorated to continue my work."

How does unconscious misogyny show up in the couples and clients you treat?

In what ways has the inequality of power across genders affected the attachment security of your clients and couple members?

In this workshop you will:

• Discover ways to enhance mutual empowerment across gender lines in the individuals and couples you see.

• Learn how to bring key elements of AEDP for Couples into your work.

• Learn how to use the Four States of AEDP and the 7 Channels of Experience together.
This day of training is based on an accelerated treatment that demonstrates the healing power of love to reunite a couple broken apart by multiple re-enactments of complex trauma from early life.

Witness how this couple from India steps out of a year of acrimonious divorce into a freshly loving, mutually respectful, stable relationship, reunited with their two sons in one home.

Witness how the power of an AEDP portrayal with the male of this couple turns the tide in one individual session.

See how this treatment provides "fantastical" alternatives to re-enacting early trauma experiences.

Discover how centuries of tradition were updated by letting go of revenge and letting love become an inner compass.

Note: This workshop will be videotaped for producing professional training material. Designated seats will be provided for those who do not want to be videotaped.
