    about the training:


    Dance movement therapy is a creative, mind/body approach that is cost-effective, age-old, and client-centered, and a powerful ways to work with trauma and PTSD. Since trauma is a crisis of humanity and mortality, speechless terror in the body, and about stuckness, numbness, fragmentation and inability to play, we need nonverbal, creative, dramatic, rhythmic and integrative approaches. Therapeutic outcomes of this work can help: Heal body/mind split from dehumanizing terror; be a creative means for containing, discharging and re-channeling aggression; strengthen individual and community resilience and connections; decrease compassion fatigue and caregiver burnout; increase family communication and support; bridge multicultural symbolic forms; symbolize traumatic losses and hopes for the future; and establish connection between the body and the brain. This workshop trains therapists to become familiar with the use of dance movement therapy to work with trauma and PTSD.

    Caring for ourselves as psychologists is central to our effectiveness in caring for others. What helps therapists and students to thrive, be resistant to stressors and live long, healthy lives? Involvement in activities involving creativity and the arts offer meaning, purpose and connection. Art is a universal way to make meaning of our experience, to enlarge our world, to create an opportunity for empathy and to celebrate our shared humanity as well as our diverse perspectives. Evidence which supports the benefits of engagement in the arts will be presented. We will explore the ways in which engaging in creative process can enliven, build community, enhance well being and be an effective method of self care. Creative engagement can contribute to professional competence and to the mastery of developmental tasks through the professional lifespan. Therapists at all stages of professional development can harness their creativity to cross-fertilize, heal, and renew through self-expression.

    Transformational Change in Psychotherapy

    The Polyvagal Theory & the Theory and Practice of AEDP


    Presenters:  Stephen PORGES, Ph.D. &

               Diana FOSHA, Ph.D.


    April 17, 2015 Plenary Session 5:30 p.m. - 8:15 p.m.

    308 Research Dr., Durham, NC


    In recent years, Polyvagal theory has revolutionized our understanding of the human nervous system. It has garnered the interest of both researchers and practitioners in the fields of medicine, psychiatry, psychology and mental health in general. In this conference, Stephen Porges will explain his theory and how it can help inform clinical interventions, guide clinical practice, and re-conceptualize trauma and its treatment.  His work will provide clinicians with new perspectives as well as new tools to help clients with affect regulation problems. 


    Diana Fosha is the creator of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), a revolutionary new healing oriented approach to psychotherapy informed by advances in affective neuroscience and attachment research.  A powerful and innovative clinical theory underlies AEDP’s therapeutic action and practice. Through relational and experiential processes and the in-depth processing of emotion, AEDP works with transformational experiences that heal trauma. The further metaprocessing of these transformational events results in the emergence of new experiences for our clients marked by enhanced resilience, vitality, and a renewed zest for life.  In other words, AEDP’s methodology seeks to clinically work the edge of neuroplasticity to make change happen.


    This conference provides a novel opportunity to hear these two important innovators discuss their work and the connections between them.
