AEDP™ Psychotherapy

There is no better way to capture the ethos of AEDP than to say this: we try to help our patients and ourselves become stronger at the broken places. By working with trauma, loss, and painful consequences, we discover places that have always been strong, places that were never broken.

Start Your Training Now


AEDP training utilizes a three-pronged method to engage both left and right brain, as well as mind and heart, in your learning of AEDP. Our courses have opportunities for (i) didactic presentations, (ii) teaching from clinical videotapes and (iii) experiential exercises, with the proportion of time spent in each varying based on the course material and learning objectives. Clinicians emerge from AEDP training and supervision with a theoretical understanding of the AEDP healing-oriented transformational theory, a felt sense of how AEDP is practiced, and, over time, a large repertoire of specific skills for the embodied clinical practice of AEDP.


AEDP Certification

AEDP is a comprehensive, integrative theoretical and clinical model. It is rigorous, unique, and effective. To be eligible for AEDP Certification, clinicians must demonstrate mastery of the theoretical model, proficiency in applying AEDP interventions to diverse clinical populations, and an overall understanding and commitment to AEDP principles, and our mission, ethos and values. The clinician can apply for certification at the recommendation of their AEDP supervisor.
