The Nuts and Bolts of AEDP: Translating Theory into Clinical Practice

Accelerated-Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy is a transformation-based, healing-oriented model of therapy. It integrates and uses to clinical advantage all we now know about neuroplasticity, mother-infant research, dyadic resonance, developmental models, transformational studies, body-focused treatments and attachment research and theory. AEDP fills the longstanding gap between theory and clinical practice: it explicates how to engender secure attachment in our different therapeutic dyads with specific intervention strategies for expanding self-self attachment and self-other relational capacities.

To practitioners first discovering AEDP it can look deceptively easy and almost magical. AEDP is in many ways a natural, instinctual way of working and yet it is not magic, it is not easy. It is rather a rigorous treatment modality with very specific skills, interventions, sequences of interventions, and maps that translate AEDP theory into how to work AEDP clinically.

Appropriate for both those new to AEDP and those with experience, this workshop will be a nuts and bolts 5 day dig into how to do AEDP. Inside the magic, there is a clear and recognizable structure, the bones of AEDP. We will practice the language of actual interventions, the steps and sequences that allow the work to flow, and the maps and protocols that inform our decision-making. We will unpack how to facilitate the different dyadic change processes that are central to AEDP.
