"The Change Triangle is both a map and a tool that you can use every day. You can turn to it to manage upsetting moments, or when you are in conflict with yourself or those you love, or when you’re looking to understand yourself more deeply. You can turn to it when you want to feel more calm and openhearted. Practiced over a lifetime, working The Change Triangle builds resilience and emotional stability."
Hilary Jacobs Hendel
I came to Accelerated experiential-dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) during training on Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy. It seemed like everyone I met at the Emotion Focused Couples Therapy training was also trained in AEDP. AEDP focuses on what is right with you, it looks at the glimmer of hope within you even when it feels gloomy inside. This innovative method was developed by Dr. Diana Fosha. I was fascinated by AEDP an integrative form of psychotherapy that focuses on healing-oriented techniques. it is attachment-focused, emotion-focused, experiential, creative, relational, somatic, and body-centered, as well as very positive. The goal of AEDP is to help you develop the skills needed to address the painful emotions of traumas rather than resort to defensive strategies. I teach all of my clients Hilary Jacobs Hendel, Change Triangle, as noted in her book, It's Not Always Depression. I will be teaching a 12 session emotion-focused psychoeducational curriculum developed by Dr. Jacobs Hendel and translating it into Spanish, No siempre es depresión: Escucha tu cuerpo, descubre tus emociones fundamentales y conecta con tu auténtico Ser (Spanish Edition) 1st Edition, with her permission.
