Please respect the patients who have allowed AEDP to share their experiences, and respect the decision they have made to reveal themselves so that you can learn how to help other patients more effectively. Therefore, even beyond any other legal obligation of confidentiality, you are agreeing to treat this content and the sessions described therein the same way you would treat the experiences and records of your own patients.
