AEDP Immersion Course

“AEDP is the attachment-based experiential psychotherapy model par excellence. Diana and the faculty are teaching the best relational, experiential therapy I know of.  AEDP has deepened and empowered my work with couples as well as individuals and is a lovely complement to EFT.”
      ~ Richard Harrison PhD
       Adjunct Professor, University of British Columbia



The AEDP Immersion course is intended for clinicians interested in AEDP as a healing-oriented, transformation-based therapeutic model, in its transformational theory and phenomenology, and in exploring AEDP’s unique contributions to the treatment of attachment trauma. We also seek to undo the clinician’s aloneness by working to foster a vibrant community of like-minded and like-hearted others.

It is the vision of the course to bring together clinicians from different perspectives who share an interest in AEDP specifically and/or in dynamic-experiential work in general, but who also each bring his or her own very special expertise, interest and experiences. In this way, not only will the course be exciting and enlivening, but AEDP will continue to grow, be enriched and enhanced by being in communication, or dyadic coordination with these other lodes of knowledge and wisdom.

This course is a requirement for, and the recommended first step to, AEDP Certification.

What other clinicians have to say:

“I am still a student and learn much from your presentations.  I love your intuitions and how you structure your therapeutic sessions. From the outside it looks/feels like a well choreographed opera pulling the observer through the client’s emotional challenges being guided by the combined energy of the client’s sincere desire to transform and the therapist’s confidence in the transformative process.”
      ~ Stephen Porges, PhD, Creator of the Polyvagal Theory
      Distinguished University Scientist, Founding Director Traumatic Stress Research Consortium

This was an amazing training for me, very informative, both with a theoretical and practical focus, simply transformational.”
     ~ Petra Amrani, PhD

“As I heard Diana Fosha eloquently lay out the theoretical basis of the [AEDP] model, seamlessly integrating the clinical and research literature on attachment with affective neuroscience, witnessed its immediately positive impact on the many clients we saw on videotape, and had the opportunity to safely practice some of the new learning with fellow workshop participants, I still vividly recall the feeling of “coming home” and the recognition that AEDP  would henceforth ground my clinical work, my teaching, and my personal exploration going forward.”
    ~ Steve Kanofsky, PhD Professor Emeritus, The Wright Institute, Berkeley,  CA


This course was fantastic. Diana Fosha’s model elegantly integrates important elements of several major psychotherapeutic traditions. The model, tapes of sessions, and discussions were extremely moving and meaningful. Minute-to-minute tracking of the experience between client and therapist is a powerful intervention.”
