AEDP Skills Courses: Advanced Skills (ES2)

 

“The AEDP Essential Skills course is absolutely one of the best psychotherapy trainings I have ever done. The format is a perfect balance of didactics, video observation and experiential practice (doing it!), with loads of supportive individual attention and feedback. I can’t recommend this training enough!”
              – Victoria Lemie Beckner, PhD

What you will learn: AEDP Skills courses, Essential Skills (ES1) and Advanced Skills (ES2), provide therapists with practical skills for “doing” AEDP. Our aim is to teach concrete and specific skills in both left-brained and right-brained ways. Different skills are introduced, explained, illustrated and practiced each day so that participants emerge with both an intellectual understanding and a felt sense of how to practice AEDP.

Daily routine: AEDP skills are introduced each morning first with their theoretical foundations and then with illustrations by way of clinical videotapes; skills are then practiced in group experiential exercises each afternoon.

Faculty and Experiential Assistants: In AEDP, we pride ourselves in how thoroughly and deeply we seek to both undo professional aloneness and engage in rigorous clinical teaching from excellent faculty: at least two and more often three or more faculty present their work in a given Skills course.  And Faculty and students receive skilled accompaniment from committed assistants: all AEDP Skills courses feature a large number of Experiential Assistants – up to and most often including one Experiential Assistant for every three participants.
