Abstract
Six interviews were conducted with AEDP-therapists with the purpose of examining their experiences concerning dyadic affect regulation. The transcripts were analyzed with Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) and two main themes and nine sub-themes emerged. The first main theme concerns the dyad as a substantial and palpable experience, how this influenced the therapeutic endeavor, and obstacles and means of how to establish the dyadic relationship. The second main theme accounts for the various methods and approaches employed by the therapists for the purpose of affect regulation within the dyad. In summary these largely concern presence and awareness, the body as a fundamental point of departure, reliability and dependability,... (More)

In summary these largely concern presence and awareness, the body as a fundamental point of departure, reliability and dependability, sensitivity and synchronization, intimacy and warmth and, finally, courage and intention to be and stay emotionally close. The results are discussed in relation to modern research in different fields such as intersubjectivity, embodiment, attachment theory and more. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
I denna studie intervjuades sex AEDP-terapeuter med syfte att undersöka deras erfarenheter och upplevelser rörande dyadisk affektreglering. Intervjuerna analyserades enligt Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), vilket genererade två huvudteman och nio underteman. Analysen visade att dyaden upplevs som något substantiellt och påtagligt, samt visade på de olika sätt som terapeuterna jobbar med affektregleringen inom ramen för en dyadisk relation. Sammanfattningsvis handlar de olika teknikerna och förhållningssätten mycket om närvaro och medvetenhet, kroppen som både utgångspunkt och ingångspunkt, stabilitet och pålitlighet, följsamhet och synkronisering, intimitet och värme samt, slutligen, mod och vilja att vara känslomässigt...

Resultaten diskuteras i relation till modern forskning inom olika fält som embodiment, intersubjektiv psykoanalys och anknytningsteori. (Less)
