Mt. Sinai West


Presenters: Ben Lipton, LCSW & Ben Medley, LCSW-R

Using extensive videotape from their clinical work, the presenters will illustrate specific ways that AEDP can be used to address the therapeutic needs of men that so often center on shame and aloneness.

In Feeling Like a Man you’ll learn:

  • How homophobia and heterosexism impact both gay and straight men
  • How to recognize and undo shame with male clients
  • How to use AEDP – including self-disclosure and dyadic regulation of affect – to undo aloneness and foster secure connection with male clients
  • How to use the AEDP technique of metaprocessing to anchor new emotional and relational experiences to help heal trauma and build resilience
