AEDP for Couples
Helping Couples Move Beyond Hot and Cold Conflict to Develop Lasting
Love and Trust
with David Mars, Ph.D., AEDP Institute Senior Faculty
Saturday, May 3, 9-4:30, in Santa Fe, NM
6 CEU's Available for counselors, social workers, and psychologists
AEDP for Couples is an accelerated method of helping couples find the guiding light of love freshly. It catalyzes the building of relationship that reflects the values and self-at-best of both members of the couple.
Based on the work of Diana Fosha, it brings affective neuroscience, attachment research and transformational studies together in ways that potentiate new capacities to heal both current and historical deprivation and trauma. It provides a natural combination with EFT and other methods of couples treatment.
It expands the ability of therapists to bridge to the heart and mind of each couple member through somatic tracking methods. It establishes a felt sense of love from the first session, and evokes experiences that melt through fixed and invariant habits to bring out the love that is hidden beneath.
In the morning we will watch a vivid video-taped first session of a couple that is on the brink of a break-up. In the afternoon we will view the breakthrough second session as the couple begins to heal the wounds of historical abandonment and broken trust that brought their relationship to the brink of ending in the first place.
This workshop will be videotaped with the intention of producing training materials. There will be a seating area provided that will be free of camera coverage.
Continental Breakfast and Mediterranean Salad Lunch included.
$165 Early Bird up to April 15th

$145 Students and groups of three or more
Refund policy: For cancellations up to two weeks before the workshop a full refund will be give minus a $25 administrative fee. Less than two weeks, no refund but 50% of the fee paid will be applied towards the next AEDP Southwest workshop.
David Mars is the developer of AEDP For Couples.
David has specialized in the somatically-focused treatment of couples and groups for over three decades, and has trained with Diana Fosha, the originator of AEDP, since 2005.
For thirty years he has been an innovator in developing process-oriented, somatically and empathically-focused couples treatment. His style as a presenter is described as inspiring, humorous, warm, and personable.
He quickly evokes trust, which ushers in an exchange of ideas and points-of-view about how therapists can more effectively treat the historical trauma and deprivation that underlies most marital dysfunction.
Participants are moved to apply what they experience in the workshops, partly due to the videos and live demonstrations.
