Course Description

AEDP psychotherapy is an empirically supported approach that seeks to alleviate patients’ psychological suffering by helping them process the overwhelming emotions associated with trauma in a way that facilitates corrective emotional and relational experiences that mobilize changes in the brain.

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

This course’s focus is on AEDP psychotherapy’s transformational theory and practice.

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

The Immersion course will teach you how to work at the edge of transformational experience and how to use somatic-affective transformational markers to guide interventions. You will learn how to use the model’s rigorous transformational phenomenology to closely track clinical processes. 

Extensive use of clinical videotapes of actual therapy sessions will demonstrate hallmark AEDP techniques.

The course also includes one half day of experiential practice in small groups (usually 4 participants) guided by assistants.

In the Immersion course we also seek to undo clinicians’ aloneness by working to foster a vibrant community of like-minded, 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, and who also each bring their own very special expertise, interest and experiences. In this way, Immersion is not only exciting and enlivening for its participants, but AEDP itself continues to be enriched and enhanced by being in communication with many deep sources of knowledge and wisdom.

What an average day looks like

  • Theoretical presentations grounding the clinical work in the conceptual framework of AEDP 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 in one half day of the course to practice aspects of AEDP through structured experiential exercises.
