How AEDP Works

AEDP heals trauma and helps to undo aloneness by championing the innate healing capacity of neuroplasticity in a safe, attached therapeutic relationship.

Through moment-to-moment, in-depth processing of difficult emotional and relational experiences, AEDP clinicians help clients recover their sense of core self and experience increased resilience and a renewed zest for life.

AEDP has roots in many disciplines including interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, emotion theory and affective neuroscience, body-focused approaches as well as transformational studies.

We asked some of our AEDP faculty and practitioners to come up with a single paragraph describing “How AEDP Works.” Each person brings a unique perspective and touches on a different facet of the process. Taken together, their thoughts capture the essence of AEDP.
