What is AEDP?
The communities of AEDP practitioners are rapidly growing both in Colorado and world wide. Clinicians are drawn to this model largely because it speaks to the hearts and minds of us as we live and work. Developed in the 1990's by Dr. Diana Fosha, the author of the The Transforming Power of Affect: A Model For Accelerated Change, AEDP is a deep way of working with clients that years of research in progress is proving to be transforming both our clients and us as clinicians.
There is no better way to capture the ethos of AEDP than to say this: we try to help our patients and ourselves become stronger at the broken places. By working with trauma, loss, and painful consequences, we discover places that have always been strong, places that were never broken.
AEDP is a change-based, healing-oriented, relational, and experiential model.
Privileges Emergence of what is novel and good
Focuses on the moment of change for the better
Focuses on the experience of change in the moment
PRIMARY GOALS OF AEDP
