About this course

This course consists of 12 lectures that provide an in-depth understanding of affect regulation theory’s clinical model. These lectures have been pre-recorded, subtitled and transcribed and translated also for a Spanish Language Version and an Italian Language Version.
This course examines our two systems for regulating affect: a primary, early developing system in which the processes are unconscious and automatic and a secondary, later developing one in which the processes are conscious and deliberate. Both systems develop in the attachment relationship. Secure attachment results in the optimal capacity to regulate affect. Insecure attachment, the result of early relational trauma, results in deficits in regulatory capacities. Such deficits result in chronic dissociation at low levels of stress, pervasive shame and personality disorders. Treatment of the capacity to regulate affect occurs in the implicit therapeutic relationship mediated by non-verbal expressions of affect.

This program requires that you read ahead of each lecture the book by Daniel Hill.

Learning goals:

This course will provide an in-depth exploration of affect regulation theory with a focus on the primary affect regulating system. At the end of this course the students will be able to:

  • Formulate an in-depth understanding of affect regulation theory.
  • Define affect
  • Name three ways to regulate affect in therapy practice.
  • Assess the affect regulating capacities of their patients
  • Explain the secure attachment relationship as mediator for fostering a robust capacity to regulate affects.
  • Classify their patients' developmental histories
  • Distinguish favorable from detrimental developmental situations.
  • Inspect how deficits in the capacity to regulate affect develop out of the insecure attachment relationships.
  • Formulate strategies to help their patients to ameliorate with the shame experienced due to insecure attachment.
  • Identify the ways in which deficits in affect regulation develop into personality disorders and other psychiatric disorders.
  • Diagnose from the Affect Regulation perspective
  • Design affect-regulation-based treatments
  • Identify the value of therapeutic relationship as a catalyst for affective regulation for individuals in psychotherapeutic treatment.
