Neuroplasticity in Action

DATE(S): Wednesday, April 24, 2024 | Time 7-8 pm EST
LOCATION: Online Webinar
PRESENTER(S): Ron Frederick, Ph.D 

Course Information

Early lessons about emotion and connection form instructional blueprints that get stored in memory systems outside of our awareness. Left unchallenged, they persist into adulthood and directly affect the ways we respond to our emotions and how we interact in our intimate relationships. With its focus on the here-and-now relational experience, Accelerated Experiential-Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) is ideally suited to unlocking and reworking internal working models of attachment. This discussion, based on Dr. Frederick’s chapter Neuroplasticity in Action: Rewiring Internal Working Models of Attachment in the book Undoing Aloneness and the Transformation of Suffering Into Flourishing: AEDP 2.0 will focus on both the theory and practice of AEDP and how our work as therapists can be deepened by an understanding and making use of the mechanisms involved in Memory Reconsolidation.
