Join Diana Fosha, IEDTA's 10th International Conference keynote Speaker, and EDT colleagues from around the world in Venice, October 13-15, 2022
We are pleased to announce Diana Fosha, Ph.D., as the keynote speaker at the IEDTA's 10th international congress in Venice this October. Dr. Fosha is the developer of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic
Psychotherapy), a healing-based, transformation-oriented therapy model for treating trauma and attachment trauma and she is the Founder and Director of the AEDP Institute. For the last 20
years, Diana has been active in promoting a scientific basis for a healing-oriented, attachment-emotion-transformation-focused trauma treatment model. Her most recent work focuses on flourishing as a seamless part of AEDP’s process of transforming emotional suffering.
Described by psychoanalyst James Grotstein as a “prizefighter of intimacy,” and by David Malan as “the Winnicott of [accelerated experiential] psychotherapy,” Diana Fosha is known for her powerful and precise, yet simultaneously poetic and evocative writing and presenting style. Diana’s phrases — “undoing aloneness,” “existing in the heart and mind of the other,” “True Other,” and “stay with it and stay with me,”— capture the ethos of AEDP and beautifully resonate with “Love is in the Air”, the theme of IEDTA’s 2022 conference.
