Since April of 2014 I've been leading AEDP training here in Ithaca. My original goal was twofold: I wanted to build a community of colleagues who share my enthusiasm for the remarkable transformative power of Diana Fosha's Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy.
I am also so passionate about the power of AEDP to heal that I want to stimulate interest and help therapists learn the basic skills of AEDP locally. Several members of the groups are finding their experience with AEDP so rewarding that they are traveling to New York, Boston, and even San Francisco to learn from AEDP Institute faculty.
Since the first group began in 2014, five more cohorts of AEDP learners have joined the AEDP community here in the Finger Lakes region of New York State, and three thriving ongoing groups continue to meet. Members of all groups range in experience from relatively "new" clinicians to very seasoned therapists. They share a devotion to their clients, and a desire to offer the most effective treatment possible. As people learn the skills of AEDP, they report that not only are their sessions with clients more productive and engaging, but they see remarkable shifts in their own personal lives. As we use the skills of AEDP we grow our capacity for authentic presence with others.
If this sounds interesting to you, and you are a member of a healing profession where such skills might be useful, please contact me. I continue to offer introductory trainings and skill-building modules of AEDP.
AEDP clinicians are invited to join the aedpfingerlakes.com listserv which offers a place to request or offer experiential therapy referrals, and from which you will receive notification of special AEDP related events, locally and internationally.
