This course is intended for practitioners interested in AEDP, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. Our focus is on AEDP’s transformational theory and practice using AEDP work at the edge of healing experience to repair attachment trauma. Making extensive use of clinical videotapes of actual therapy sessions as well as one half day of experiential work guided by assistants. The aim of this course is to introduce AEDP and facilitate its integration into clinical practices that make use of other experiential, body-focused, trauma-based, relational and/or psychodynamic methods.
AEDP seeks to undo the patient’s aloneness in the face of overwhelming suffering and to engage innate healing forces within, i.e., transformance, so as to heal trauma, restore vitality to self experience, and engender resilience.
AEDP Immersion is the first course in a series of certification courses for licensed therapists who are seeking to become AEDP Certified.
AEDP Immersion: Theoretical Framework, Clinical Teaching from Videotapes, Experiential Exercises: The AEDP 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 AEDP’s rigorous transformational phenomenology to closely track clinical processes. Extensive use of clinical videotapes will demonstrate hallmark AEDP techniques.
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’s 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 to practice aspects of AEDP through structured experiential exercises.
