He is the author of Affect Regulation Theory: A Clinical Model (W.W.Norton, 2015 in English). His publications and presentations include topics ranging from the clinical use of multiple models to religious fundamentalism. He was the founder/director of PsyBC and CSAR (1996-2017) that were online learning centres and held conferences on Affect Regulation Theory in NYC. For the past 15 years, Dr Hill has conducted on-going study groups focused on an in-depth understanding of the regulation of affect.

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.
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.
About Daniel Hill, Affect Regulation Theory
“Understanding affect is central to human psychology, and from the start, Freud was concerned with the vicissitude of how emotions connected to ideas and to their transformations into symptoms and psychopathology. And yet psychoanalysis has been slow to develop a comprehensive theory of affects. Daniel Hill is a master teacher, and in Affect Regulation Theory, he demonstrates how affects, and their regulation and dysregulation, are central to our sense of agency, authenticity, and interpersonal relations. He grounds his understanding in psychoanalysis, attachment theory, and neurobiology and illuminates the clinical relevance of relational trauma, dissociation, and self-states, thus integrating a comprehensive theory of mind, development, psychopathology and psychotherapy. This book will be essential reading for graduate students and clinicians.”
“With Affect Regulation Theory, Daniel Hill makes an invaluable contribution to the growing field of psychotherapy that is reflective of a psychobiological perspective. The book is well written, well researched, and comprehensive. For any therapist seeking to broaden his or her theoretical knowledge base, with the ultimate goal of incorporating that information into clinical practice, I recommend reading this book first and foremost”
“Daniel Hill has written a beautiful, user-friendly translation and elaboration of the theories of Allan Schore, Daniel Siegel, and Peter Fonagy. Illustrating with clinical vignettes, Hill integrates affect regulation, early attachment trauma, and theories of neurobiology. This is an excellent book for the working clinician.”
“Affect regulation theory is the surprising meeting ground of neurobiology, developmental psychology, and psychoanalysis. In this important book, Daniel Hill captures its relevance to each of these realms. Wonderfully comprehensive and engagingly written, this book will be a boon to students. It will also captivate those of us whose education preceded these exciting developments by deeply enhancing our understanding of human emotions.”
“Daniel Hill’s Affect Regulation Theory is a superb synthesis of cutting-edge developments in attachment theory and research, mother-infant research, research on mentalization, affect regulation theory, neurobiology and psychoanalytic theory. Clinically astute and gracefully written, it will be of great interest to clinicians coming from a wide range of theoretical orientations.”
“An outstanding contribution, this accessible volume offers fresh and compelling perspectives on dissociation, internal working models, trauma, attachment, pathogenesis and more, all through the lens of affect regulation. Drawing on the work of Allan Schore, the author’s emphasis on the role of the implicit self and brilliant integration of neuroscience and theory with clinical practice will hold your interest page after page. Affect Regulation Theory is sure to spark new ways of thinking about your patients and their problems, challenge how you view your role as clinician, and quite possibly change the way you practice therapy. Don’t miss it!”
