Essential Skills • 2015-2016 • Boston

AEDP Essential Skills (ES1), aimed at practitioners, is practical. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, skill sets, concrete and specific. Different skill sets will be introduced, explained, illustrated and practiced each weekend, so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to practice AEDP. The basic skill sets necessary to practice AEDP will be introduced each weekend, with theoretical foundations and with videotapes and group experiential exercises in the afternoon.

Participants will learn the AEDP clinical roadmap, decision tree, protocol, and the right-brain language of experiential treatment. The training will include didactic material, clinical videotapes of actual sessions, experiential exercises, and small and large group processing.

AEDP Institute Senior Faculty SueAnne Piliero, Ph.D. will helm the course. As course leader she will teach Module 1 and co-teach the remaining four modules with other AEDP Institute Faculty members. Experienced AEDP practitioners will assist with the experiential practices.
