AEDP evolved from her training with Habib Davanloo who pioneered Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy. But Fosha turns his confrontational approach on its head, replacing it with a powerfully engaging and empathic therapeutic approach.
Fosha also draws on Emotion Focused Therapy [Les Greenberg] , Michael Alpert's Accelerated Empathic Therapy, and David Malan's Brief Psychotherapy.
Bowlby's Attachment Theory forms the infrastructure for an essential dyadic framework. Above all she seems to me, closest to the legendary Donald Winnicott in the poetic humanity of her treatment method.
Fosha introduces many powerful innovations to the therapeutic process. Among the most striking is the use of empathy rather than confrontation to bypass defenses. Perhaps the most original technique is meta-therapeutic processing, in which therapist and patient reflect on the impact of what has transpired between them, after each round of emotional processing.
Fosha has brilliantly pulled together and integrated some of the best therapeutic interventions to derive a most powerful new generation dynamic psychotherapy.
Essential reading for all who wish to remain dynamic psychotherapists.
