There is a new core training group starting in September 2020. Core training tend to fill quickly so please contact Lia Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to apply for the 2020-21 training.
Core Training in AEDP offers a quintessential opportunity to learn the theory and practice of AEDP in the inspiring company of other motivated colleagues. The group integrates a primary focus on supervision from videotape with didactic presentations and demonstrations from both AEDP Institute Core Faculty and Certified Supervisors. Core Training groups meet intensively for five weekends ( Fri-afternoon to Sunday mid day OR all day Saturday and Sunday) over the course of 7-9 months and consist of 10-12 members. The concentrated time that members spend together immersed in learning AEDP tends to foster a culture of trust and generosity which allows the risk-taking of exposing one’s own videotaped work, many opportunities to learn from the work of others, and a supportive environment that is uniquely suited for optimal experiential and reflective learning.
The AEDP Core Training Program offers an intensive, synergistic, three-pronged approach to learning AEDP: (1) The development of an explicitly supportive and expansive collegial environment that can nurture the professional development of individual group members both in their local areas and within the greater AEDP community; (2) the opportunity to learn AEDP theory and technique through didactic presentations making use of videotaped material; and (3) individual supervision in a group setting. We are committed to maximizing learning by creating an individualized and accepting experience for all members within the context of the overall group process.
In addition to previous AEDP training, there are a number of factors that contribute to determining the best group composition. Submitting an application isn't a guarantee of acceptance.
The group beginnings in September, 2020 and run through April, 2021 (dates to be finalized and last weekend may occur in May 2021). You must be a licensed therapist or practicing as an intern under supervision for licensure to apply.
The group for all levels of AEDP Training (Immersion course or registration for Immersion course or AEDP supervision are minimum prerequisite).
Each weekend consists of:
A two-hour didactic seminar detailing AEDP theory and demonstrating its clinical application. The didactic portion will include videotape illustration of relevant clinical principles.
Extended clinical supervision segments during which group members will share videotaped sessions of recent sessions with current clients and receive individual supervision in a group setting.
