Who the Immersion course is for

Immersion is for licensed mental health practitioners (or the local/regional equivalent to ‘licensed’*) as well as interns legally practicing under the license of a supervising practitioner. 

These licensed mental health practitioners include: Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Doctors, Nurses, Psychoanalysts, Psychotherapists, other Behavioral Health Therapists and related professionals. 

*Every country / state / province has different rules regarding licensing. While AEDP™ Institute is generally familiar with navigating the licensing process in the U.S., we are not familiar with the process and regulations in most other countries. Our practice is to consult local AEDP practitioners for information on the nuances of education, licensing and other regulations in their areas.

Course Content Level: Beginner/Intermediate

This course is intended for practitioners interested in AEDP™. Our focus is on AEDP transformational theory and practice using AEDP work at the edge of healing experience to repair attachment trauma. Making extensive use of clinical videotapes of actual therapy sessions as well as one half day of experiential work guided by assistants. The aim of this course is to introduce AEDP and facilitate its integration into clinical practices that make use of other experiential, body-focused, trauma-based, relational and/or psychodynamic methods.

AEDP seeks to undo the patient’s aloneness in the face of overwhelming suffering and to engage innate healing forces within, i.e., transformance, so as to heal trauma, restore vitality to self experience, and engender resilience.

AEDP Immersion is the first course in a series of certification courses for licensed therapists who are seeking to become AEDP Certified


AEDP Immersion: Theoretical Framework, Clinical Teaching from Videotapes, Experiential Exercises:  

The Immersion course is an individualized but structured training of AEDP psychotherapy’s rigorous transformational phenomenology and its experiential psychotherapy techniques. During this intensive training, the Institute’s highly credentialed and skilled faculty teach theoretical underpinnings and practical methods for the application of the AEDP model. Participants in the course learn AEDP techniques for working experientially with relatedness and emotional experience including: undoing their patients’ aloneness, dyadically regulating intense emotion, and processing emotional experiences including corrective moments when care, support, affirmation and compassion are emotionally “taken in”. Course participants witness, track, discuss and begin to practice these AEDP hallmark techniques. Case examples are used throughout to demonstrate therapeutic interventions using videotaped sessions of the presenter’s own AEDP work with clients, including making use of many of the videos of AEDP clinical work that are part of APA’s Clinical Videos series. For a half a day on the 7th day of the course –by which time participants have been exposed to ample didactic materials and clinical videotapes illustrating the principles being taught in live clinical action, participants’ new skills are practiced in small group experiential exercises bringing AEDP theory and clinical practice to life: furthermore, these hands-on practice exercises are conducted under the close supervision of certified AEDP therapists and are an important aspect of AEDP’s deliberate practice approach to teaching and training.

What an Average Day Looks Like:

  • Theoretical presentations grounding the clinical work in the conceptual framework of AEDP’s healing oriented transformational theory.
  • Clinical teaching revolving around clinical videotapes, with a focus on the phenomenology of transformation as well as techniques and strategies of intervention. Special attention will be accorded to working with the experience of transformation, the healing affects, offering and receiving affirmation, and promoting core state experiencing, all in the context of transforming attachment trauma. In essence, this Immersion course is a soup-to-nuts course in AEDP.
  • And there is also opportunity to practice aspects of AEDP through structured experiential exercises.
