Who the Advanced Skills Course is for:
AEDP Level 2 clinicians who have completed Immersion plus either Essential Skills (ES1), or Core Training, or the equivalent in AEDP supervision (30 hours Small Group or 20 hours Individual).
Level 3+ AEDPers are encouraged to participate to earn CE’s while refreshing AEDP skills and reconnecting with faculty and community.
“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
Upcoming Courses: Advanced Skills Modular
Modular: those who complete any five Modular courses will have completed the equivalent of an ES2 10-Day Retreat-Style course.

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. To see a listing of AEDP therapists who act as Experiential Assistants, click here.
This AEDP course is open to all Licensed Mental Health Providers including Counselors, Doctors, Nurses, Psychoanalysts, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, Social Workers, other Behavioral Health Therapists and related professionals. If you have a question about the relevance of this course for you and/or your eligibility for this course please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your credentials before registering.
