Course Description

This course explores all aspects of time-limited 16-session AEDP Psychotherapy. We will review the history of time-limited psychodynamic treatment in the development of AEDP; explore the connection between 16-session AEDP Psychotherapy and the ongoing systematic research into the efficacy and practice of AEDP. We will demonstrate how it is possible to do time-limited AEDP, while preserving the depth and complexity of AEDP, as well its fundamental attachment orientation, healing-based methodology and experiential processes. The course will cover the practical, applied, nuts and bolts of how to do a 16-session protocol of AEDP. These include: selection and exclusion criteria; how to conduct the first session of 16-session Psychotherapy AEDP; how to introduce and leverage the time–limit from the get-go; goal setting and ongoing evaluation of the goals; mid-treatment issues and dynamics; and how to approach and work with termination in a way that is congruent with the model’s relational and transformational orientation. We will also cover strategies for navigating potential challenges that may arise in the course of time-limited AEDP treatment. Special attention will be paid to healing from the get-go sessions (initial sessions 1-3) and how the change process catalyzed in therapy can extend beyond the end of treatment.
