Introductory AEDP Workshop: An Elegant Psychotherapy Model for Healing Emotional Trauma & Pain
Join us for this one-day Northampton Introductory Workshop — a rare and first-time opportunity in the Pioneer Valley — to learn about AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy). Judy Silvan, Certified AEDP Supervisor with Jessica Wolk Benson, AEDP Level III therapist, will lead a day-long adventure to introduce therapists to the basic theory and practice of AEDP, our elegant emotional-healing model.
AEDP is steeped in attachment theory, creating an affect-focused, experiential treatment; it emphasizes experiences of "righting" what feels "wrong" inside, from the very first clinical contact. In addition, AEDP brings highly affective maps and tools for working experientially and dynamically with attachment trauma, as well as many other presentations such as dysthymia, depression, shame and anxiety.
Using both didactic presentations and videotape of sessions, Judy and Jessica will bring their unique and combined clinical flavors to break down the basics of AEDP.
You will leave with a basic understanding of the model, keys to working as an attachment-oriented therapist, and some skillful means for co-creating a "bottom up" healing experience with your clients. AEDP is deceptively simple, and once learned allows emotional healing to soar for our clients who have had less than optimal results with interpretive, analytic or behavioral psychotherapies. This will be a way to dip your toe in and understand what makes this therapy model both unique and reliable for deep emotional healing. We look forward to having you for this event! Tea and light snacks will be provided at the morning and afternoon break; lunch on your own.
