Core Training in AEDP offers a quintessential opportunity to learn the theory and practice of AEDP in the inspiring company of other motivated colleagues. These groups integrate a primary focus on supervision from videotape with didactic presentations and demonstrations from AEDP Institute Core Faculty and Certified Supervisors (with input on the didactic from Institute Faculty). Core Training groups meet intensively for five weekends ( Fri-afternoon to Sunday mid day OR all day Saturday and Sunday) over the course of 8 months to a year 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 extensive 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.
