Introduction to Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) Friday, September 6, 2019 Denver, Colorado
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. It is a deep and complex way of working with clients that years of research in progress is proving to be transforming both our clients and us as clinicians.
What is AEDP?
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.
Join Certified AEDP Supervisor Jessica Slatus, LCSW and Certified AEDP and EFT Supervisor Lia Jones, LMFT for an Introduction to this powerful model. Whether you are brand new to the model or have had a limited amount of training in AEDP, this workshop will use video and clinical discussion to walk through the fundamentals of AEDP and strengthen your understanding of the model
