Getting Past Trauma


Diana Fosha On Bring Out Clients' Dormant Resilience

As therapists, we all know that you can have a seemingly safe, trusting bond with a traumatized client and still not have it translate into real changes in that person's life.


In a recent interview with Rich Simon, Diana Fosha, originator of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), shows us how to move to a different level of connection with clients that can make a difference outside the consulting room.


It’s all about being in the relational moment.


In this clip she explains how attending to what she calls "micro-tracking"--picking up on small changes in expression and affect--can add enormous power to work with people who've been traumatized.

Diana is one of six innovators interviewed in our webcast series starting August 23rd, the Latest Advances in Trauma Treatment, in which she vividly demonstrates how to move beyond a focus on trauma to bring out a client's dormant resilience.

      In the broad sense if you see what domyessay.today 's writers mean, we see a demand for equal results for people in the US from the left, but a disregard results for people in other countries. Such as a lack of appreciation on the left for the fact that our liberal trade policy has caused great improvements for people in China.
