What attendees said about Natasha Prenn when she presented the same conference in the fall of 2017:

 "WONDERFUL! No one does a better job of teaching how to connect head and heart than Natasha does. Such a fun workshop. And so smart."

"Excellent in every way. Wonderful presenter."

"I always LOVE the workshops at the Retreat, but this one was by far one of the best! Natasha was a dynamic presenter, and I put AEDP to work with my 1st session Monday morning! Results were wonderful. Thank you, and I hope she returns soon!"

" I have had experience taking AEDP workshops with Natasha and always find her to be an inspirational presenter."

"The presenter was smart, entertaining and compassionate, making for a unique and engaging learning opportunity."
Course Description
Appropriate for both those new to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and practitioners with AEDP experience, this workshop will be a nuts-and-bolts dig into how to do AEDP.  Ms. Prenn will use a balance of videotape, practice exercises, and user-friendly course material to make AEDP's complexity simple and practical.  Attendees will head back to work armed with immediately applicable clinical interventions and a framework for clinical practice.
Learning Objectives:
At the end of this conference, participants will be able to:
  1. Use various ways to microtrack and unpack client-therapist interactions.
  2. Utilize and define different kinds of self-disclosure.
  3. Utilize specific interventions to build and expand here-and-now emotional and relational capacities.
  4. Define metaprocessing as a key intervention in AEDP to strengthen attachment bonds.
  5. List somatic correlates of emotion to harness change for the better.
  6. Apply the ‘triangle of experience’ to work with core feelings, anxiety and defenses.
