ASHA CLINTON, MSW, PhD, is the developer of Advanced Integrative Therapy, a new depth therapy that integrates the energetic removal of trauma with depth analytic understanding.
A former Princeton professor in full-time practice for 37 years, she trained in analytical psychology, expressive arts therapy, object relations, self psychology, and Sufi and Buddhist practice, later integrating them all into AIT.
She has developed and taught 14 AIT seminars focusing on the comprehensive treatment of the attachment, personality, anxiety, and dissociative disorders, and on the treatment of historical trauma, psychogenic illness, triggers, and spiritual blockage, and has written the manuals for each.
She has taught AIT seminars in the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, Denmark, Guatemala, and El Salvador, and participates in AIT trauma relief projects with the Maya and Xinca of Guatemala, the Navajo, in post-9/11 New Jersey, and in post-Katrina New Orleans.
