In the winter semester, Affecting Affect, a ten module seminar, explores strategies for teaching and modulating emotion regulation with clients. The seminar offers didactic and experiential tools to model how therapists can teach clients new strategies for dealing with hyperaroused and hypoaroused emotional states as well as guidance on how the therapist can use her or himself in the therapy process as a “neurobiological regulator” of affect in interactions with clients. The interplay among attachment style, the expression of affect within the therapeutic relationship, and dynamics of transference and counter-transference will be explored as well. Learning will incorporate theory (derived from contemporary neuroscience, psychodynamic, and somatic approaches), experiential exercises and case consultation.
